Staff said they saw a red vehicle in the parking lot driving fast and almost hit other vehicles and people. Wayside staff also said they saw the driver stick a gun out of the window and fire several shots into the air.

While police were on the way, staff said the suspect’s vehicle had left the bar and was at the McDonald’s parking lot on South Mission.

An officer saw a red car pulling into the lot and stopped it.

The driver, identified as 20-year-old Corey Horne from Lansing, had red, glossy, bloodshot eyes, and admitted to drinking alcohol, according to police.

After taking a preliminary breath test, police reported he had a .07 percent blood alcohol content. He also had a restricted license.

After searching the vehicle, officers said they found a .40 caliber handgun in the glove box. Officers said the magazine was out of the weapon, but there was a round in the chamber. Five additional .40 caliber rounds were also found in the passenger side door, according to investigators.

Officers ran the firearm through LEIN, which showed the weapon registered to the front seat passenger, 21-year-old Dequarius Payne from Lansing. He didn’t have a Concealed Pistol License (CPL) permit.

Video from the incident later showed the suspect driving the vehicle, and firing shots. Police were also able to recover spent casings from a .40 caliber weapon.

Horne was charged with discharging a firearm from a vehicle, carrying a concealed weapon, operating a motor vehicle without security, operating while intoxicated, carrying a concealed weapon while under the influence, reckless driving, reckless use of a firearm and brandishing a firearm in public.

Payne, who owned the weapon, was charged with carrying a concealed weapon.
