A customer killed a restaurant worker after she added “too much mayonnaise” in the sandwich, reported Fox 5 Atlanta.

The incident happened after an argument between the customer and the restaurant worker. It ended up with one worker injured and another dead. At the time of the incident, the five-year-old kid of the victim was inside the store when the incident took place.

Restaurant owner Willie Glen said that the customer was mad about too much mayonnaise in the sandwich. “Believe it or not, it was about too much mayonnaise in his sandwich,” said the owner.

The police claim that the customer shot two employees working at the restaurant. A 26-year-old woman succumbed to her injuries while a 24-year-old worker has been admitted to hospital and is in a critical condition.

Police say they have arrested the 36-year-old shooter. “He decided to escalate the situation and from there — that’s when all hell broke loose,” added Glenn.

According to the reports, the manager on duty tried to open fire on the customer but missed it.

“This was a very tragic situation that did not have to occur,” Deputy Chief Charles Hampton Jr. said during a news conference Monday. “The suspect came inside the restaurant (to) order a sandwich and there was something wrong with the sandwich that made him so upset that he decided to take out his anger on two of the employees here.”

The medical examiner has identified the woman as Brittany Macoon. The initial autopsy report claims gun wounds are the reason for death.

“It just breaks my heart, to know that someone dares to point a weapon, and shoot someone for as little as too much mayonnaise on a sandwich,” Willie Glenn, the co-owner of that Subway, told CNN affiliate WSB-TV.

“They were just model employees,” Glenn told WSB.

A spokesperson for Subway said, “Our deepest condolences go out to the families and friends of those attacked in what was a senseless act of violence. At this time, our main concern is for the franchisees’ team members and guests who were inside the restaurant.”
