Police believe man was killed over Popeyes chicken sandwich

Man stabbed to death outside of Maryland Popeyes restaurant

Prince George's County Police are still investigating the case, but believe that the incident may have started when someone cut in line at the restaurant.

According to reports by local news stations, it was around 7:00 p.m. on Monday when two men who were standing in line at a restaurant in Prince George's County got into an argument.

The squabble spilled into the parking lot outside the packed restaurant where one of the men was stabbed.

"What we have since been able to determine.is that this is related to the release of the sandwich here at this restaurant".

The 28-year-old victim was from the Washington area, police said. In preparation, Popeyes hired 400 more employees for its 150 locations, Bloomberg reports, which is enough staff for two dedicated chicken-sandwich-duty staffers per store.

Officers who arrived on the scene applied lifesaving measures until the man was transported to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead, Donelan said.

The suspect is still at large, and police are asking for the public's help in identifying him.

No, you probably still can't go to Popeyes, order its new chicken sandwich, and obtain said chicken sandwich in a reasonable time frame. "He knows what he did here tonight and he needs to do the right thing and he needs to step up and he needs to turn himself in", Donelan stressed.

CNN has reached out to Popeyes for a statement. The victim and the suspect's identities were not immediately released.

The restaurant announced that the return of their beloved chicken sandwich would commence on the made-up holiday National Sandwich Day which fell on November 3.
