A fight that broke out when somebody jumped ahead in a line for Popeyes’ popular chicken sandwich turned deadly in Oxon Hill, Maryland, Monday night.
Prince George’s County police said a 28-year-old man died after he was stabbed multiple times while in the parking lot of the restaurant on Livingston Road in Oxon Hill Plaza.
“We have been able to determine that preliminarily that this is related to the release of the sandwich here at this restaurant. This individual was in line, a line specifically for the sale of the sandwich, when another customer and he got into an altercation. That ended with the victim being stabbed outside of the business,” said Jennifer Donelan, spokeswoman for the police department, during a news conference.
When police got on the scene around 7 p.m., officers immediately started lifesaving measures. The victim died 51 minutes later at the hospital, Donelan said.
“Knowing that a life was taken, it is hard to put into words. I can’t find the right words to describe what was done to this innocent victim,” Donelan said.
