JACKSONVILLE, Florida - A Florida man apparently loved 'that chicken from Popeye's' but hated the price, so he allegedly shot a Popeye's employee on Wednesday, according to the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office.


Action News Jax reported that the Florida man first pulled up to the restaurant in a dark-colored older model Ford pickup truck and tried to order inside a Popeye's located on North Edgewood Avenue in Jacksonville, Florida around 9 p.m.

The Florida man then ordered his meal through the drive through window, but got mad over the cost, and went back inside where he allegedly punched the employee and shot him, News4Jax reports.

The man then fled the scene and the Popeye's worker was later transported to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office at 904-630-0500 or Crime Stoppers at 1-866-845-TIPS.
