Waiter shot dead by diner over ‘slow service’
A customer shot a waiter to death at a pizzeria in the Paris suburbs after being made to wait too long for a sandwich, witnesses say.
Witnesses say the man was angry about the length of time taken to prepare his sandwich, the prosecutor’s office confirmed.
The gunman fled the restaurant and the waiter died at the scene. Police have opened a murder investigation and the suspect is still on the run, according to the prosecutor’s office.
“He was killed for a sandwich?” said one, according to AFP.
However, the surrounding area is known for high levels of crime, including drug dealing and public drunkenness, according to AFP.
In March, social media rumors of child abductions by members of the Roma ethnic minority sparked a wave of violence in France, though authorities dismissed the claims as baseless.
