According to investigators, the 80-year-old woman had stopped into the Burger King at 3788 S. Orlando Drive in Sanford to get breakfast. While she was in the parking lot, police say Shockley came up to her and demanded that the 80-year-old woman give her the keys to her car or she'd shoot her.

The 80-year-old refused. That's when Shockley grabbed her, and they both fell to the ground. A Burger King employee came outside to help the older woman, and Shockley ran away.

Shockley was found just a few minutes later at a nearby gas station, police said.
