Surveillance footage of the shooting has not yet been shared publicly. An investigation into the incident is still ongoing.

Al Robinson, co-owner of the Subway store, was shocked when he learned what happened.

“You pull out a gun and shoot someone over a sandwich, my heart just breaks now,” he said WSBTV

Interim chief of police Darin Schierbaum later told the news channel that arguing is the leading cause of murders in 2022.

“An argument leads to someone picking up a gun and firing that gun, leaving someone dead or someone seriously injured,” he said.

He added that people need to learn to debate and better handle disagreements.

“We need individuals to settle their differences, walk away and not take up arms,” ​​Schierbaum said.

“We can take out drug operations that cause violent crime, we can dismantle gang organizations that cause violent crime, we can stop robberies that cause violent crime, we can’t stop someone who is crazy because there is too much mayonnaise on their sandwich.”

Glenn said the gunman had previously served in the store and had never had any issues with employees until now.

“Because of what happened tonight, my partners and I are re-evaluating whether or not we will continue to do this in this neighborhood,” adding that it’s not worth taking a risk.
