Atlanta Subway Employee Shot Dead by Customer in Argument Over Mayo

Eric Perry, Fox 5 Atlanta, June 27, 2022

An argument over mayonnaise at a Downtown Atlanta Subway ended with one worker dead and another in the hospital.

Police say the shooting happened around 6:30 p.m. at a Subway located at a gas station on Northside Drive Southwest.

Police say a customer killed one worker at a Downtown Atlanta Subway and sent another to the hospital over an argument about the amount of mayo on his sandwich.


“Believe it or not, it was about too much mayonnaise on his sandwich,” owner Willie Glenn said.

In this argument, police say the customer shot two Subway employees, leaving a 26-year-old woman dead and another 24-year-old woman rushed to surgery in critical condition. Atlanta police have arrested a 36-year-old man.

“He decided to escalate the situation and from there — that’s when all hell broke loose,” Glenn said.

Glenn said the injured employee’s 5-year-old son was inside the store when the shooting started.

Glenn said the manager on duty returned fire at the suspect, but wasn’t able to hit him.

“I don’t know what the world is coming to especially with our youth. They seem to be so hot headed,” he said. “Everybody wants to carry a gun. Everybody wants to scare somebody wit ha gun. It’s scary out here.”


Glenn said the two women in their 20s were sisters who had just started working at the store three weeks ago.


Police have not released the name of the man arrested or the name of the woman killed.
