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.
“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.
