Man arrested after 1 killed, 1 injured over ‘too much mayo’ at Atlanta Subway
A Subway employee is dead and another one is in the hospital all because a customer thought there was “too much mayo” on his sandwich, according to the store owner.
This all happened at a location on Northside Drive in Atlanta just after 6:30 p.m.
According to police, the woman killed was just 26-years-old. The owner told 11Alive she had only started working there a few weeks ago. A second victim, who police said was 28-years-old, is currently in the hospital in critical condition.
A suspect has been arrested, according to Atlanta Police.
Both the owner and police mentioned that the son of the employee injured was inside during the shooting and witnessed everything.
“We had a customer come in that was a little upset with how his sandwich was fixed,” the owner explained. “Believe it or not, it was over too much mayonnaise on his sandwich.”
That’s when the owner said the man began shooting and a store manager shot back.
He said that the shooter has come in before as a customer; however, he said there hasn’t been any issues in the past.
“Because of what happened tonight, my partners and I are reevaluating whether or not we’re going to continue to do this, in this neighborhood anyways,” the store owner said, noting it’s just not worth the risk.
