A “high-risk offender” who allegedly sparked a terrifying confrontation at a central Queensland McDonald’s has handed himself in two days later and more than 300 kilometres away.

Police fired at the white Mitsubishi Magna Zachariah Hewitt was driving as he fled the North Mackay fast food spot’s car park on Friday morning, scaring many of the 50 staff and workers inside.

The 26-year-old eluded police, who indicated a nearby car chase shortly after the incident may have been linked.

A search for the man reportedly widened across the weekend before he eventually handed himself in at Rockhampton police station, 338 kilometres south, about 6pm Sunday.

On Friday, Mackay police Inspector Ian Haughton told journalists outside the fast food restaurant that “police did discharge some firearms” in an attempt to stop the man leaving the car park.

McDonald’s shift manager Rossana Matheson heard a customer screaming and originally thought the alleged offender had fired a single shot.

A witness, who didn’t give his name, told the Mackay Daily Mercury he heard three shots and saw the white sedan.

“He came screaming out with a smashed-in windscreen and a smashed-in front of the car and cleaned up a couple of other cars in there and I think there was three shots fired,” he said.

Mr Hewitt, from Slade Point in Mackay’s north, is expected to be charged on Monday, with police to update local media at 8.30am.

The Ethical Standards Unit will investigate the shots fired by police.
