A Subway sandwich shop employee is dead and another hospitalized after a customer opened fire over the amount of mayonnaise on their sandwich.
Atlanta police have not identified the victims, two women shop co-owner Willie Glenn said were “model employees,” WSB reported.
“It just breaks my heart, to know that someone has the audacity to point a weapon, and shoot someone for as little as too much mayonnaise on a sandwich,” he said.
Both of the women had started work in his store about three weeks ago, Glenn said.
Police were called to the shop just after 6:30 p.m. Sunday and have not yet located the shooter.
According to WAGA, Glenn said the store manager fired back at the customer but missed.
“We need individuals to talk out their disputes, walk away and do not pick up guns,” Atlanta’s interim Police Chief Darin Schierbaum told WSB. “We can take down drug operations that breed violent crime, we can dismantle gang organizations that breed violent crime, we can stop robbery crews that breed violent crime, we cannot stop someone who is mad because there is too much mayonnaise on their sandwich.”
The wounded victim was in surgery early Monday morning and her condition was not known.
