Man Stabbed To Death After An Argument Over Popeyes's Chicken Sandwich

(WAB NEWS) – A man was stabbed to death on Monday in a Maryland Popeyes after wh at appears to have been an argument over the chicken sandwich relaunched by the restaurant, police said.

The victim, a 28-year-old man, was stabbed outside the restaurant around 7 p.m., Prince George's County spokeswoman Jennifer Donelan said at a press conference on Monday.

He had been lining up for a chicken sandwich when he and another man had an argument, which was passed to the street, Donelan said. Police believe the discussion began about someone trying to sneak in line.


"So you get angry about anything … and develop this kind of violence, again, it's a very sad and tragic day," said Donelan.

Officers who arrived at the scene used rescue measures until the man was transported to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead, Donelan said.

The police are still looking for the suspect. Donelan asked the suspect and the people who were in the restaurant at that time to contact the detectives.
