Customer Shoots Chipotle Worker Over A “Guac” Disagreement

Who doesn't crave a dollop of guacamole on their  favorite Mexican treats? But in Michigan, the passion for this condiment reaches such heights that it sparked a literal shootout.

Believe it or not, a Chipotle employee found  themselves on the wrong end of a bullet, all because of a guacamole-related dispute. While the exact words exchanged  remain a mystery, it's clear that tempers flared enough for one disgruntled customer  to resort to brandishing a firearm. Fortunately, the employee is on the mend, and authorities swiftly apprehended the 31-year-old gunman and Detroit native.

Ah, Detroit—never a  dull moment, right?

From Fox 2 Detroit:

The shooting took place at a Chipotle on Evergreen Road near Civic Center Drive, around 6:50 p.m.

"It was loud, and then we all just ran out," said Michael Beals, a customer who captured the incident on video. "I wasn’t really thinking… there was going to be a shot, but there was."

The victim, a 21-year-old man, is in stable condition, according to a release from Southfield police. He was transported to a hospital, where he is being treated for the non-life-threatening injury.

"I was just eating a bowl and I heard shouting. And then I looked over, they're arguing. One of the workers went to the back, I don't know why, and then when he was in the back, the customer walked around the counter, tried to grab his food and put it in a bag," said Thomas Huber, another witness. "Then the employee came back, and they started fighting, and then we heard a gunshot and just ran out as quick as we could."
