Georgia Checkers employee shoots customer upset over wing order, manager says

DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. — An employee at a Georgia fast-food restaurant shot a customer who was unhappy with his order, authorities said.

The shooting happened around midnight at the Checkers off Candler Road in DeKalb County.

The manager confirmed the shooting to WSB-TV′s Kristen Holloway and said the employee has been fired.

The manager told Holloway the shooting started over a chicken wing order.

Two men placed their order at the walk-up window and became upset when the order was wrong, according to the manager.

She said they tried to remake the order when the two men started yelling at employees.

The manager said they opened the window back up, and one of the men threw all the wings at the employee.

That is when the employee shot the customer.

Holloway spotted several bullet holes in the shattered window and the wings that started it all.
