Fired Little Caesars Pizza employee shoots manager after she isn’t rehired: court docs
CINCINNATI (WXIX) - An employee recently fired from Little Caesars Pizza tried to get her job back this week but wound up shooting and critically wounding the manager instead, court records show.
Cincinnati police arrested 27-year-old Angel Kidd on a felonious assault charge. They booked her into the Hamilton County Justice Center shortly after 1 p.m. Thursday.
Kidd’s bond was set at $500,000 during her arraignment on Friday.
Her attorney asked the judge for a lower bond and said more will be revealed in the weeks to come.
“She has absolutely no prior criminal history that I can show. She does have a valid defense to this charge. We don’t want to get into it this morning, but she does have a valid defense,” Kidd’s attorney said.
The shooting was reported at Little Caesars eatery on Vine Street in the Hartwell community Tuesday night.
Kidd “returned to the business after being fired and requested her job back,” police wrote in the sworn statement.
“After being told she would not be re-hired she began fighting the store manager in the parking lot. During the struggle (Kidd) pulled a gun and shot the store manager in the left leg. (She) fled the scene in a blue SUV.”
The manager was taken to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center in critical condition and underwent surgery, according to police.
An update on his condition was not immediately available Friday morning.
Police say the business was open at the time of the shooting but it’s not clear if any customers were inside.
