SALT LAKE CITY, UT – A 27-year-old man was arrested last week, as officials say the suspect’s four-year-old son opened fire at police after allegedly being told to by his father.
According to local reports, the series of incidents leading up to cops being shot at was sparked initially over an incorrect food order at a McDonald’s drive-thru.

The incident occurred on the afternoon of February 21st at a McDonald’s located off of 425 West 7200 South. Authorities say 27-year-old Sadaat Johnson had become irate with McDonald’s employees over a incorrect order, allegedly brandishing a firearm at the drive-thru workers.
After the employees told Johnson they’d correct his order, they contacted police, who arrived on the scene shortly thereafter and were able to locate Johnson’s vehicle.
Responding officers were able to extract Johnson from the vehicle, when one of the officers noticed a gun protruding from the vehicle – pointed at the officers.
The officer who noticed the weapon was able to quickly redirect the weapon away from other officers – but he still managed to suffer a graze wound from when the gun was fired.
It was at this time that the officer was able to see the shooter, a four-year-old boy seated in the backseat of Johnson’s Honda, right next to his three-year-old sibling. Officials say the child had fired the gun after being told to by his father.
Luckily, outside of the graze wound sustained by the officer, no one was seriously injured during the incident.
Johnson was arrested under charges of felony child abuse and the threatening use of a dangerous weapon. As for the two children, state social workers reportedly took custody of them.
Salt Lake County Sheriff Rosie Rivera said that he’d never seen anything like this in his nearly three decades in law enforcement.
“This campaign against police officers, this needs to stop. We’re here to protect and serve, and this is getting out of hand. This is a child who thought it was okay to pull a firearm and shoot that firearm at police. I’ve never seen anything like this in my 28 years.”
Sheriff Rivera also called the officer who redirected the weapon a “hero,” for both protecting his fellow officers and alerting his peers that the shooter was a child. “He’s a hero in my mind. He saved a life today.”

Not fake. Did you even watch the video?
You might be onto something here. No video surveillance footage and they want to rid drive thru’s so cars don’t idle in them. So with a few stories like this McDonald’s could say they’re no longer offering drive thru service.
That’s ridiculous. Don’t you realize that just the opposite is what is wanted? Many new restaurants are being built as drive thru ONLY. No dining rooms.
It happened. Even ABC covered the story.
Your leftist owned ABC has the report too. Includes video. https://www.nbcnews.com/video/4-year-old-fires-shot-at-utah-police-during-mcdonald-s-drive-thru-altercation-133745733605
Good job reporting man.
the entire world has gone insane.
Just recently, I came to the same conclusion. I call it ‘covid’ madness (or rather lockdown madness) – ‘Their’ plan is working. At least to some extent.
Mass formation psychosis.
I’m of the belief it’s the Political Left who are crazy but not the entire world.
Next they’ll be teaching their young to wear suicide vests –
They already do in certain parts of this world. They send them on their mission right after they sodomize them.
Sad as that is its the shocking truth that nobody wants to hear – Scream loud cas Bidum is at the top of that list of pedophiles
We are here in America because those who are in Government have made certain people remain poor. Soon, all of you pro police will be in prison. You will be vaccinated.
The police have not arrested the real criminals in government.
The bible has been misinterpreted. The reason the children become unruly is they are now the parents watching the government criminals in positions of power committing horrific crimes against humanity.
I think the child was just trying to protect his father…really a terrible scene for him to see…
Where was Fu..cki in this episode – OH I know staring at his portrait of himself because he needs something bigger than himself to look at – I really hope Americans who voted this crap into office are enjoying the consequences of their greed
By the commie way, they might try him as an adult and sentence him to hard labor or Dads going to have a custody battle on his hands for child endangerment. The left is going to conflate this story to hell and back and make an example of this child’s actions for the cause of trying to get our guns.
Two more kids stolen for the cabal….
For ghetto blacks this is completely normal, and won’t be prosecuted by blue city/$oro$ DA’s.
Something HAS to break…
How in the world did a little 4 yr old PULL THE TRIGGER!!???? MAN, THATS SOMETHING. 😳
