A teenage girl was shot to death outside a McDonald’s after she was allegedly targeted for chucking water over the fast-food restaurant’s staff.
Tragic Tierra Franklin, 17, died in Chicago as suspect Anthony Heredia, 19, stands accused of pulling the trigger in a revenge attack over Tierra hurling the liquid.
Heredia was reportedly summoned to the location by a pal during a dispute, but cops have not confirmed who his friend was or what started the alleged water-throwing.

Tierra, who had dreams of becoming a lawyer, was allegedly shot twice by Heredia as he passed on a bike.
Her devastated family told news outlet ABC7 that she was about to enter her senior year at Curie High School.
It marks another dreadful tragedy for Tierra’s loved ones after her mum, Keeyana Sanderson, died of cancer in April this year and her unnamed dad died after he was shot around 12 years prior.
Heredia was apprehended by cops on Friday (July 1) after staff from McDonald's recognised him as being at the scene before the shooting.

Prosecutors said the suspect was allegedly caught on CCTV picking up a used shell from the area – which cops later found in his pocket, reports say.
The 19-year-old appeared for a bond hearing on Sunday (July 3) where Cook County prosecutors charged him with first-degree murder and unlawful use of a weapon.
He told Circuit Judge Susana Ortiz: “I just want to apologize to the victim's family” before she ordered him to be held without bond.
Heredia is in the care of child services and has been living with foster parents, his lawyer Courtney Smallwood told the hearing.
Judge Ortiz questioned how easy it was for the suspect to buy a deadly firearm and added that it was simpler for him to get a gun than a pack of cigarettes.
