A female restaurant worker was killed and another was left injured after a 36-year-old man reportedly opened fire following a dispute on the amount of mayonnaise placed in a sandwich in Atlanta.

The victim of the incident was identified as Brittany Macon. Per reports, the 26-year-old was shot when the unidentified suspect fired at a Subway sandwich shop on Sunday, June 26. This was after he took exception to the way his sandwich was prepared, Fox 5 Atlanta reported.

Macon was pronounced dead at the scene.

Also injured in the shooting was a 24-year-old female co-worker of Macon. She was rushed to the hospital for treatment but is reportedly in critical condition.

The five-year-old son of the injured worker was also at the scene but was unhurt.

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

The male suspect behind the shooting has been arrested and is now in police custody. His identity has yet to be revealed and there is no update as of this writing on the possible charges he is facing in connection with the case.

It was also added that the two female workers only started working for the establishment this month. Both were allegedly model employees.

"I don't know what the world is coming to, especially with our youth," the store owner said to the station. "They seem to be so hot headed," he said. "Everybody wants to carry a gun. Everybody wants to scare somebody with a gun. It's scary out here."

Police are now seeking the help of the public who may have vital information about the case. Those who can help are encouraged to contact Crime Stoppers Atlanta at 404-577-8477, text information to 274637 or visit the Crime Stoppers website. A reward of $2,000 awaits those who are eligible.
