APD responded to a gunshot call just after 6:30 p.m. at a Circle K gas station at 74 Northside Drive Southwest. When they arrived, they learned that two women had been shot dead after an argument over the amount of mayonnaise on a customer's Subway sandwich.
Willie Glenn, the co-owner of this subway stop on Northside Drive in downtown Atlanta, said it breaks his heart.
"It just breaks my heart to know that someone would have the audacity to point a gun and shoot someone for as little as too much mayonnaise on a sandwich," Glenn said.
He would not release the identities of the employees because he is still waiting for family members to be informed, but said both are young women who only started at the site about three weeks ago.
"They were just exemplary employees," said Glenn.
Interim police chief Darin Schierbaum said arguments are the leading cause of homicides in 2022.

"An argument results in someone picking up a gun and firing that gun, killing someone or seriously injuring someone," Schierbaum said.
Schierbaum believes that when there is a dispute, there should be more talk and fewer weapons.
“We need individuals to voice their differences, walk away and not pick up guns. We can stop drug operations that breed violent crime, we can shut down gang organizations that breed violent crime, we can stop robbery squads that breed violent crime, we can't stop someone who's angry because there's too much mayonnaise on their sandwich," Schierbaum said.
Al Robinson, also a co-owner of the Subway restaurant, described the shooting as just too much.
"You pull out a gun and you shoot someone over a sandwich, my heart is breaking right now," he said.
