The shooting took place in Atlanta at around 18:30 local time, and left a 26-year-old female member of staff dead and a 24-year-old female member of staff injured and rushed to hospital. She remains in a critical condition.

The owner of the store, Willie Glenn, told FOX5 that the pair were sisters who had only started working at the store three weeks earlier.

He said the shooting had taken place as a result of a condiment dispute.

“Believe it or not, it was about too much mayonnaise on his sandwich,” Glenn said. “He decided to escalate the situation and from there that’s when all hell broke loose.”

The manager on duty at the time returned fire but didn't hit the gunman.

“I don’t know what the world is coming to especially with our youth. They seem to be so hot-headed,” Glenn said.

“Everybody wants to carry a gun. Everybody wants to scare somebody with a gun. It’s scary out here.”
