A Denton woman locked the front doors of the fast-food restaurant where she works on West University Drive at about 9:40 p.m. Sunday after she got a text message from her ex-boyfriend.
According to a police report, in the text, the ex threatened to shoot up the place along with the people inside.
The woman told police that she has a protective order against the ex-boyfriend, who is not allowed to come near her home or her place of work. The woman said she feared for her life, and the lives of her co-workers, as she went to the front doors to lock them.
When she saw her ex-boyfriend standing across the street, she called police.
An investigation is continuing.
