A man complaining about too much mayonnaise in a sandwich at a sandwich shop in Atlanta Police said they fired, killing one employee and injuring another.
The shooting took place around 6:30 pm. On Sunday, at a subway restaurant attached to a gas station in downtown Atlanta. Police said the man had discussed with them before shooting two female workers.
"This was a very tragic situation that didn't have to happen," Atlanta Police Deputy Chief Cabinet Secretary Charles Hampton, Jr. told reporters Monday.
He said a 36-year-old man, suspected of being a shooter, was arrested Sunday night after someone unspecified by police provided information to them. Hampton said police did not immediately publish the suspect's name due to an ongoing investigation.
The woman who died was 26 years old. Another woman, 24, remained in crisis on Monday, Hampton said. The injured woman's five-year-old son was in a restaurant at the time, and Hampton lamented the trauma that his child had to deal with.
"It's frustrating to have a 26-year-old woman who isn't with us," Hampton said. "It's frustrating to me that there was an individual with a firearm that I decided was the answer to the sandwich dispute."
"Someone turned his weapon and mayonnaise on the sandwich." It's heartbreaking to know that you have the courage to shoot someone just because there are too many, "restaurant co-owner Willy Glen told WSB-TV.
