In a release on Tuesday, Prince George & # 39; s County Police Department said: & # 39; The preliminary investigation shows that McClain and the victim got into a brief verbal argument after the victim was waiting for different customers to order food.
& # 39; Then they both stepped out of the line, walked out the front door together, and McClain immediately stabbed Davis. McClain then fled the area. & # 39;
He entered the fast food joint on Livingston Road's 6200 block around 5:00 am on November 5, where about three dozen people were queuing up, many waiting for the newly released chicken sandwich, police chief Hank Stawinski said.
He then cut the line and was confronted with a male suspect. The two exchanged words and the argument escalated to the point that the two left the restaurant and Davis was stabbed. Cops say the entire confrontation lasted only 15 seconds.
Prince George County Police also released a surveillance photo of the nameless suspect last Tuesday, begging to identify the public.
