Texas Sonic Worker Murdered For Not Accepting Fake Money From Two Customers

Sonic Daily Report July 10,2024

A Texas Sonic worker was killed by two female customers after an argument at the store’s drive-through this past Sunday.

The incident unfolded around 9:30 p.m. when Daniel Shrewsbury was at work on his shift in the San Antonio location, one news outlet reported.

The other customer reportedly shot Shrewsbury, who went back inside the restaurant but was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police released photos this week of the two women who were arguing with Shrewsbury before the attack. One is a young woman in a black T-shirt and gold necklace, while the other appears to be an older heavy set Hispanic woman wearing what appear to be brown pants.

No arrests have been made and the identities of the suspects have yet to be released.

“Once my brother went out there and confronted them about the fake money, he got shot,” Jojo Shrewsbury, the Sonic employee’s grieving younger brother, said.

“He was a real good brother, not just to me but everybody.”

Jojo Shrewsbury said his brother, who was less than a week away from celebrating his 34th birthday when he was fatally shot, was a “role model” to him and to many others.

“He’s not just known as a Sonic employee. He’s more than that,” he told the news outlet.

Shrewsbury had been shot once and managed to run back inside the restaurant, where he died at the scene.

A witness in the drive-through heard three gunshots and said an employee ran to his car stating that an employee had been shot.

“I was on my phone sitting in line. And I heard what sounded like at first, the first gunshot. But didn’t really register that that’s what it was,” the witness said. “And then I heard two additional gunshots after that and my mind went, ‘ok something is happening here’. Tried to get out of there essentially, I was scared.”

On Tuesday, Shrewsbury’s sister Jazmin Robinson took to Facebook stating that her brother ” didn’t deserve to go like this” and calling the suspects cowards.

“They took my brother without any hesitation not caring about his family or loved ones it’s a sad sad world we live in ladies & gentleman I never thought I would loose my brother this way,” she wrote.

“I love you big brother forever & I always will, they took your body but they can’t have your soul, my memories of our time together will stay with me forever, I will never forget how much you were an amazing hard hard-working brother.”

When he wasn’t working, Shrewsbury was a big video-game player, his family told the news.

On Monday, a memorial was placed by the door of Sonic.
