BREAKING: Maryland Man Fatally Stabbed While In Line At Popeyes

A Maryland man was fatally stabbed after a fight over a Popeyes chicken sandwich.

The same day Popeyes brought their infamous sandwich back, Prince George's Police were called to a restaurant after a fight over a spot in line ensued, resulting in the fatal stabbing.

Prince George's Police Department Director of Media Relations, Jennifer Donelan released a statement regarding the incident:

"We have been able to determine, preliminarily, that this is related to the release of the sandwich here at this restaurant... this individual was in line specifically for the sale of the sandwich when another customer and he got into an altercation and that ended with the victim being stabbed outside of the business."

Police say the fight was started as one man believed the other cut in line. The 28-year-old victim was taken to a hospital, but died an hour after arriving.
