Subway Employee Allegedly Killed For Putting Too Much Mayonnaise On Atlanta Man’s Sandwich

More than a year after a fatal shooting at a Subway restaurant, Melvin Williams, the man accused of killing an employee and injuring another over a dispute about mayonnaise, has been denied bond as he awaits trial.

Court documents obtained by 11Alive and WSB-TV reveal that Williams will remain in custody until the trial, which has not yet been scheduled.

The incident occurred in June of 2022, when Williams allegedly shot and killed 26-year-old Brittany Macon and injured her coworker Jada Statum, who was 24 at the time.

The dispute reportedly stemmed from an argument about the amount of mayonnaise on Williams’ sandwich. Willie Glenn, the store owner, recounted the tragic escalation, stating:

“Believe it or not, it was about too much mayonnaise on his sandwich. He decided to escalate the situation from there, and that’s when all hell broke loose.”

Williams faces charges of murder, aggravated assault (family violence), aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, third-degree cruelty to children, and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, according to PEOPLE.

Jada Statum’s 5-year-old son was present in the Subway store and witnessed the shooting, adding to the gravity of the situation. It was reported that Williams was out on bond for unrelated charges at the time of the incident.

In a statement shared with Atlanta News First in June 2022, Macon’s family described her as “caring and courageous.” The family emphasized the need to address mental health in the Black community, stating, “It could’ve been anyone.”

As the case unfolds, it remains unclear whether Williams has retained legal representation to speak on his behalf.
