A man is wanted for threatening Del Taco employees with a gun while waiting for his order.

Security camera pictures give an up close and crystal clear shot of the man with it all caught on camera.

It started out as a typical drive-thru order early Tuesday morning at the Del Taco on Middlebelt south of I-96.

The suspect appeared happy at first, smiling while speaking to a cashier. He pays, then waits, sitting inside a Brown Oldsmobile Bravada. 

But suddenly, there's a mood change.

He gets of his cell phone, hops out of his car and pulls a gun, leaning into the drive thru window.

His threat, inaudible as employees scatter away.

"I'm shocked that this happened in this area over here first of all,” said one customer.

Shoppers near the location are glad the fast food restaurant had good, working cameras, which the suspect probably never saw.

He can be seen walking right up to the lens, and offering police, an up-close look at his face.

Employees are all ok and back to work as usual. If you recognize the man in this video, you're asked to give Livonia police a call.

A Del Taco spokesperson released a statement about the incident:

“Following the incident at the Del Taco location in Livonia, we took immediate action and a police report was filed. The safety and security of both our guests and employees is of the utmost importance to Del Taco. We are in full cooperation with the authorities to help identify the perpetrator.
