SACRAMENTO --

One person was shot when a drug deal reportedly turned violent at a South Sacramento McDonald's.

A large bag of what looked like marijuana was sitting amid broken glass in the parking lot of the McDonald's on Mack Road and Tangerine.

When police searched a duffel that was also left at the scene, they found a second bag of marijuana.

"With the licensing and permitting involved in marijuana cultivation, it's hard to tell whether those bags would exceed that limit or not ... but the fact that they were doing it in a public place, whether there are permits or not, is obviously an unsafe practice," said Sgt. Dan Nutley with the Sacramento Police Department.

One person was shot in an apparent disagreement over the marijuana. The person has been hospitalized, but is expected to survive.

The shooter has fled and is the subject of an ongoing police search.

"It's so scary. Very scary," said Marilyn Saquilayan, as she watched the police investigation unfold.

Instead of coming away with hamburgers, hungry would-be customers were turned away as the restaurant was shut down.
