A 36-year-old Atlanta man was arrested Sunday after he gunned down 2 young women during a dispute over too much mayonnaise at a downtown Atlanta Subway shop.

26-year-old Brittany Macon, was later pronounced dead, and a 24-year-old co-worker, who was shot in front of her 5-year-old child, is in critical condition at a local hospital.

The shooting happened Sunday evening at a Subway connected to a Circle K on Northside Drive.

A customer became enraged over the amount of mayonnaise on a sandwich and pulled out a gun and started shooting shortly after 6:30 p.m., according to Atlanta police.

A dozen police units swarmed the location within minutes of the shooting.

"What you are seeing behind me is the result of a tragedy," interim police Chief Darin Schierbaum told reporters from outside the Subway restaurant. "A senseless tragedy that we've seen numerous times throughout the year where an argument leads to gunfire, and now we have someone dead."

Within a few hours, a tip lead police to the suspect, and he was arrested late Sunday not far from the restaurant, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Deputy police Chief Charles Hampton declined to release the suspect's name on Monday, citing the ongoing investigation.

Willie Glenn, who co-owns the Subway location, told Channel 2 Action News both women started working there earlier this month.

"It breaks my heart to know that someone has the audacity to point a weapon and shoot someone for as little as too much mayonnaise on a sandwich," Glenn said.

Philadelphia PD, WRAL

A DoorDash driver was arrested after he shot a 17-year-old Chick-fil-A employee over a missing milkshake from a food order.

The employee was treated at a nearby hospital for a gunshot wound to the leg.

The shooting happened at Philadelphia's Crescentville location on Monday night.

Police said Tyquan Austin argued with the employee because a second milkshake was missing from an order he was delivering for DoorDash.

When the employee asked to see a receipt to verify the order, Austin pulled out a gun and put it in his lap, according to police.

The worker summoned the manager, who came out before Austin drove away, police said.

Austin then returned to the restaurant and fired a single shot at the worker from the entrance.

Police said Austin shot the teenager, even after Chick-fil-A employees offered to make the missing milkshake.

"The shooting was unprovoked and endangered multiple people beyond the shooting victim, who was wounded in the leg and is expected to recover," the DA's Office said.

Austin's car was found abandoned in an alley. As police secured the vehicle, a man approached and said he was not the car's owner but his belongings were inside.

The man was taken into custody by police. Surveillance video helped police make a positive identification of the suspect from a tattoo on the man's neck.

Austin, 26, faces charges of aggravated assault, possession of an instrument of crime, simple assault and reckless endangerment, the Philadelphia District Attorney's Office said Wednesday.

Newport News PD

A former U.S. Postal Service mail carrier has been convicted of murdering another postal worker's husband.

Tashara Mone Jackson, 31, was convicted in the April 2021 murder of Salahud-Din Ibn "Sal" Shabazz, the husband of another mail carrier Jacqueline "Jacquie" Shabazz.

Prosecutors say Jackson enlisted a third mail carrier, Jeremy Todd Pettway, 41, to go with her to the Shabazz household in the Menchville area of Newport News, Virginia on April 7.

Once there, Pettway allegedly shot and killed Sal Shabazz in the doorway of his home just after 2 a.m.

A judge declared a mistrial in Pettway's murder case last year, according to Yahoo! News. He was found guilty of conspiracy to commit murder.

Prosecutors say Jackson had a "long-running feud" with Jacqueline Shabazz that resulted in several workplace incidents. Their feud escalated outside a Newport News nail salon in March 2021. Jackson told police she slashed Jacqueline's tires while she was in the salon getting her nails done.

A few days later, Jacqueline's car was vandalized again in the driveway of her home. The tires were slashed and an object was jammed into the gas tank.

The Shabazzes learned that Jackson was invited to attend a party at Harpoon Larry's restaurant on April 6, and they confronted her there.

Police say Sal pointed a Taser at others while his wife and Jackson fought in the parking lot. Jackson later told police that Sal kicked her during the fight.

The following day, Jacqueline testified that she was on the phone with Sal when she heard a gunshot after he answered a knock on his door about 2 a.m.

Police found Sal dead on the floor in the doorway of his home. Four spent shell casings were found near the body.

Jackson faces life in prison at her sentencing hearing in June. Her accomplice, Pettway will be retried on the first-degree murder charge in early April.

Michigan men's basketball coach Juwan Howard was suspended for the remainder of the regular season after he slapped Wisconsin assistant coach Joe Krabbenhoft.

Michigan has five games remaining in the regular season. Howard is expected to return to coach the Wolverines in the Big Ten tournament, which begins March 9 in Indianapolis.

The incident happened on Sunday at the end of Michigan's blow out loss to the Badgers.

Howard objected to Wisconsin coach Greg Gard calling a time out with 15 seconds left on the clock and a blowout lead.

Howard slapped Krabbenhoft during the postgame handshakes, sparking a brief brawl between the two teams.

In addition to the suspension, Howard was fined $40,000 by the Big Ten Conference on Monday. Krabbenhoft was fined $10,000 but he was not suspended.

Michigan forwards Terrance Williams and Moussa Diabate and Wisconsin guard Jahcobi Neath were each suspended one game for their participation in the fracas.

Howard issued an apology on Monday, saying, "I am offering my sincerest apology to my players and their families, my staff, my family and the Michigan fans around the world. I would like to personally apologize to Wisconsin's Assistant Coach Joe Krabbenhoft and his family, too."

Howard, a member of Michigan's famed "Fab Five" team, won NBA Championships with the Miami Heat in 2012 and 2013. He was a former Miami Heat assistant coach from 2013 to 2019 when he was named Michigan's head coach.

A Black woman who says she was violently attacked by a pet store owner when she asked for a refund has posted the video of their encounter.

Judea Strong captured the incident on her cell phone on June 28, 2021 at Exotics & Aquatics pet store in Roanoke, Virginia.

She said she went to the store to ask for a refund for snake food when the owner ordered her to leave the store.

When she went to return the snake food, she was told the store doesn't issue cash refunds, only store credit.

She said, after returning to the store several times, there was no one on duty to issue the store credit.

Strong's boyfriend also attempted to get store credit without success. He posted a scathing review of the business on Facebook, which angered the store owner, Daniel Rosen.

Rosen responded to the review, asking him to not come back. The store also added that if he did return, he would be escorted out.

On June 28, Strong returned to the store to get a refund. Her boyfriend remained in the car, since he was banned from the store.

Video footage shows Strong calmly asking for a refund, when Rosen, his elderly mom and his son came from behind the counter and ordered her to leave.

"His mom tries to grab me and throw me out," said Strong. "I tell them, 'don't put your hands on me.' Several people are trying to hold him back. He's absolutely enraged. He literally picks me up off the ground, carries me over to the door and throws me out," said Strong.

Her boyfriend, who by now is outside the door, grabbed Rosen and restrained him after he put his foot on Strong's chest.

Rosen later told police he put his foot on Strong's chest "to push her out."

A substitute judge found Rosen not guilty of assault earlier this week.

"For two years, her and her boyfriend came into the store belittling my employees and berating my mother," explained Rosen.

He said Strong did not record herself cursing out his mother before going to the counter. Strong denied that accusation by Rosen.

Strong decided to post the video online to draw attention to her ordeal.

"After the charges were dismissed and everything, I was like this isn't right. I can't let this happen. I want to let other people know," said Strong.

Rosen said after the video was posted on Facebook, his store received numerous racist phone calls and threats.

"I assure you I'm not a racist. I have many ethnicities working for me and I'm friends with them," said Rosen.

Strong never mention race in her post.

Twitter activist Tariq Nasheed re-posted Strong's video with the caption:

"A Black woman tried to get a refund from Exotics & Aquatics in Roanoke Virginia, and the suspected white supremacist owner and her son violently assaulted the woman."

Authorities have identified the teenager who shot and killed eight Fed-Ex employees in Indianapolis and wounded several others.

Police say Brandon Scott Hole, 19, shot four people outside the FedEx facility near the Indianapolis airport on Thursday night.

The former Fed-ex employee then entered the facility and killed four others before turning the gun on himself.

Five people were hospitalized with bullet wounds. One is in critical condition, police say.

The FBI identified Hole and released a recent mugshot of him to the news media.

Hole's mother had warned police that he planned to commit "suicide by cop," the FBI said.

Hole was questioned last year and police seized a weapon from him after his mother warned authorities that he might try "suicide by cop."

CNN reporter Ana Cabrera tweeted, "The suspect in the Indianapolis mass shooting was known to federal and local authorities prior to the attack."

Federal agents served a search warrant on Hole's home, and seized evidence including computers and electronic devices early Friday.

Miami police escorted an unruly passenger off a Delta flight after she slapped a flight attendant who asked her to wear a mask.

The flight from Miami to Atlanta was preparing to take off when the altercation occurred in front of shocked passengers.

Other passengers filmed the incident and shared the footage on social media.

The video shows the flight attendant asking the female passenger and her boyfriend to buckle up and wear their face masks in accordance with local ordinances.

But the passenger refused to put on her face mask which was hanging under her chin. The passenger's boyfriend tried to hold her back after she slapped the flight attendant in the face.

Other passengers stood up and intervened in the argument, separating the two women.

The footage shows Miami police escorting the couple off the plane moments later. The flight was delayed for 4 hours.

"The police have boarded the aircraft. The passenger does now seem to be leaving," said Katty Kay, a journalist with BBC News, who was on the flight. "The @Delta flight attendants handled it with remarkable patience and good humor," she tweeted.

There have been numerous altercations over airline passengers refusing to wear face masks amid the weakening pandemic.

A recent study by the CDC shows 74% of people who always wear face masks were infected with Covid-19. The same study shows only 12% of people who never wear face masks were infected.

The woman left in a black sedan and returned in a white truck driven by Rodriguez-Tormes, who confronted Joshua and demanded he fight him in the restaurant parking lot.

Rodriguez-Tormes put Joshua in a headlock and began choking him. The affidavit said a witness separated the two men, and Rodriguez-Tormes went to his truck to retrieve his firearm.

According to a witness, Rodriguez-Tormes told Joshua, "You got two seconds before I shoot you," and then shot him.

Rodriguez-Tormes got back in his truck and fled the scene. He later told police he dismantled the gun and discarded the pieces in a place "which cannot be located."

Joshua was taken to a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced dead, CLickOrlando.com reports.

Rodriguez-Tormes is charged with murder, destruction of evidence and weapons possession.

Jones fatally shot himself when police attempted to stop a car in which he was a passenger in Lovejoy, according to the AJC.

The motive for the killings is unknown but police say Jones knew both women.

"This act of violence was not a random act, but all indications are they were specific in nature," College Park Police and Clayton County Police said in a report obtained by the AJC.

Reed's mother Shaunda Shepherd told the AJC that her daughter, who grew up in California, "was a very sweet, hard-working woman of Delta for 10 years. She lived a very simple life and loved life and family."

Shelby was described as "very loving, bright, caring" on a GoFundMe page launched to help pay for funeral expenses.
