SHARONVILLE, Ohio (FOX19) - An arrest has been made in connection with a deadly shooting at a Rally’s drive-thru in Sharonville Monday.

Anthony Holley Jr., 28, is accused of killing 32-year-old Michael Brice.

Sharonville police say Holley found out his wife had been in a relationship with Brice and went to confront him.

Brice went to the Rally’s in the 2300 block of E. Sharon Road, which was a frequent lunch spot for him, court records show. Holley was waiting there for Brice to arrive, documents read.

Brice was in the drive-thru when Holley walked up, threw a punch, pulled out a gun, and fired 10 shots into Brice’s body and car, records state.

A witness that called 911 described the series of events to FOX19 NOW.

“He [Holley] walked up to the guy [Brice] even before he got to the microphone and he said something to him and he went to throw a punch and the guy rolled up the window,” the person recalls. “The shooter stepped back, pulled out a gun, shot about six or seven times, and um, then he put the gun back in his pants and nonchalantly got back in his car.”

Brice was pronounced dead at the scene.

Holley drove away from the scene, but was eventually found and arrested for murder, police said.
