A woman was shot and killed this morning outside a Chick-fil-A in Prince William County, Va., and her husband has been charged.
The victim was driving a silver Chrysler outside the fast food restaurant shortly before 9 a.m. when she was shot multiple times. She died while still in the car.
Daniel L. Everette, of Burke, was charged with the murder of his wife, 48-year-old Alice Jenkins Everette, of Dumfries. Police said the two were separated.
Two nearby hitchhikers told NBC Washington that they heard two gunshots and began running in the opposite direction. At least two bullet holes were visible in the Chrysler's windshield, and a window was shattered.
Several people were in line at the drive-through at the time, police said, and a woman at the window witnessed the shooting.
Other patrons inside the restaurant are also being interviewed by police. A man on the scene said his wife was inside the restaurant and "is in hysterics."
Police haven't said whether the woman was previously inside the Chick-fil-A, located in the 2400 block of Prince William County Parkway in Woodbridge, Va., or how the shooter approached her car.
A nearby black SUV that appeared to have collided with that vehicle was actually not involved, police said. No one else was injured.
Daniel Everette is being held without bond.
NBC Washington will have more as the story develops.
