CINCINNATI -- The man accused of shooting two coworkers at the McDonald's on Beechmont Avenue was given a high bond in court Friday morning.

Zachary Allart, 20, is charged with two counts of attempted murder in response to the Wednesday night shooting. Police say Allart shot his ex-girlfriend, Jayla Frost, twice in the head and face at the McDonald's restaurant around 10:50 p.m. Police said Allart also shot restaurant manager Denise Higgins once in the back.

When uniformed deputies arrived, Allart had a gun to his head and was threatening to shoot himself, a police spokesman told WCPO. Deputies said they deescalated the situation and Allart surrendered the firearm.

A Hamilton County judge gave Allart a $2 million bond for each of the two counts.

Sgt. Mike Robison said the two victims suffered serious injuries; Frost's condition was "critical" and "grave" on Thursday.
