A Subway worker was fatally shot and another was gravely injured after an argument with a customer, authorities said.
Sunday evening around 6:30 p.m., police responded to a shooting at a downtown Atlanta gas station.
Deputy Chief Charles Hampton Jr. described the worker as a 26-year-old woman. A 24-year-old woman was also shot and injured, officials added.
A 5-year-old child was at the restaurant during the incident, but was unharmed.
The women were transported to the hospital for treatment, where the 26-year-old woman died. Her identity has not been revealed by the police.
On Monday, Hampton stated that the woman who did survive was in critical condition. According to police, a customer entered the eatery to order a sandwich and became irritated about the amount of mayo on his sub.
“There was something wrong with the sandwich that made him so upset that he decided to take out his anger on two employees,” Hampton explained.
Hampton stated the man started firing after griping that his sandwich had “too much mayo.”
Hampton stated that the man, a 36-year-old Atlanta resident, was arrested in connection with the double shooting. His identity had not been released by authorities as of Monday.
Hampton stated that he was arrested without incident.
