Akron Police were called to the McDonald's at 390 West Market Street for a shooting just before 11 p.m. Saturday night.

Police say the victim, a 28-year-old employee at the McDonald's, was taking out the trash when he was confronted by the suspect near the back door.

The suspect fired several shots, striking the victim multiple times.  The victim was transported to Akron General Medical Center where he later died.

The Summit County Medical Examiner will conduct an autopsy later.  The victim's name is being withheld pending positive identification and family notification.
