Thomas Huber, a witness told FOX 2: “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.

“Then the employee came back, and they started fighting, and then we heard a gunshot and just ran out as quick as we could.”

The incident stemmed from a dispute over guacamole, which costs a whopping $2.65 extra, according to FOX 2 Detroit, citing police sources.
