ALTAMONTE SPRINGS, Fla. (AP) -- Authorities say a Florida man shot and wounded a McDonald's manager during an argument over a drive-thru order.

Local news outlets report that 39-year-old Freddy Hormazabal was in a jail Thursday on an attempted murder charge.

Altamonte Springs police say Hormazabal became upset with his order Wednesday night, went inside the fast-food restaurant and started arguing with manager David Diaz Rosario. Hormazabal reportedly demanded a refund, and Rosario threatened to call police.

WOFL-TV in Orlando talked to the victim's father, who said the disagreement was regarding a $3.10 frappe.

A police spokeswoman says Rosario attempted to escort Hormazabal from the store, and Hormazabal shot Rosario in the neck and then fled. Rosario was taken to an Orlando hospital, where he was treated and released.

Detectives called Hormazabal on his cell phone and encouraged him to turn himself in, which he did.

Jail records didn't list an attorney for Hormazabal.
