Man Stabbed To Death For Cutting In Popeyes Chicken Sandwich Line

Kevin Tyrell Davis was stabbed to death after he cut in front of someone in the line for Popeyes' chicken sandwiches.

Oxon Hill, MD – A 28-year-old man was stabbed to death on Monday night in a fight over the line for chicken sandwiches at a Popeyes restaurant.

The incident occurred at about 7 p.m. on Nov. 4 at the Popeyes on Livingston Road in Oxon Hill, WTOP reported.

Popeyes re-released its new chicken sandwiches on Sunday after the first release in August was wildly popular and sold out within days, The Washington Post reported.

It was highly-anticipated by chicken sandwich fans and was credited with causing unheard of waits in specially-designated lines at the fast food restaurant all across the United States.

Prince George’s County Police Chief Hank Stawinski told reporters at a press conference on Tuesday that investigators believed 28-year-old Kevin Tyrell Davis had been “systematically cutting in line” for 15 minutes when he was confronted by someone else who was in line for a chicken sandwich.

An altercation ensued and the argument carried from the restaurant out into the parking lot, The Washington Post reported.

Chief Stawinski said detectives believed Davis was fatally stabbed once and then the suspect fled the area.

When officers arrived on the scene, they found Davis down in the parking lot and began performing life-saving measures before the ambulance arrived.

He was transported to the hospital where he was pronounced dead an hour later, according to WJLA.

Police are looking for the man who stabbed Davis to death.

Surveillance cameras in the restaurant captured video of the suspect and the woman he was with, and police have released pictures and asked for help from the community to identify the murderer, according to The Washington Post.

"We are looking for a male, and that male knows who he is," Prince George’s County Police Spokeswoman Jennifer Donelan said, according to WRC. "He knows what he did here tonight, and he needs to do the right thing and he needs to step up and turn himself in."

Police have also asked anyone who was in the restaurant or parking lot on Monday night and may have seen what happened to contact the authorities.

“For you to get that angry over anything... and to develop into this type of violence, again, is a very sad and tragic day," Donelan told reporters. “Knowing these details and knowing what happened here and knowing that a life was taken, it is hard to put into words; I can’t find the right words, to describe what this man did to this innocent victim.”

It was probably over that limited edition chicken sandwich they came out with.

"Surveillance cameras in the restaurant captured video of the suspect and the woman he was with, and police have released pictures and asked for help from the community to identify the murderer, according to The Washington Post".

And I'm sure the " community" will assist the popo in the capture of the low life. /sarc

if you do not know what happened in the parking lot and are asking for witnesses to come forward who may have seen the altercation, then you can not say that the person who stabbed this guy was in the wrong. he could have been defending himself, you know, " stand your ground" . it does not look good that he left the scene but until you have all the facts one can not assume that the victim who died may have been the aggressor and just bit off more than he could chew.

Oh no this means that knives need to be banned because next will be another mass stabbing. Remember now not far behind will be the Fork. There usually seen together. They may encourage the Spoon to join in. So be on the look out.

You know how it goes. "Linecutter" is just waiting for confrontation, and the moment someone say something, he gets all Magilla and literally forces someone to stab him. Darwinism.

I say focus state resources elsewhere, ya know, crimes where the victim was actually a victim.

Can you ask for better free advertising than people literally killing each other over your food?

Then again, this kind of thing probably happens annually at WalMart Black Friday sales.

Moral of the story - don't cut in line! Wait your turn and this would not have happened.

It's that pervasive "getting over" mentality in that community. Guess you can you do it so many times.

That knife had a hundred round clipazine that could deliver 1000 stabs a second without reloading. Should ban it because it’s a scary looking ghost knife with no serial number 🤣

Didn't need to stab him seeing they both ended up in parking lot so they BOTH LOST their place in line

Popeyes chicken sandwich isn't even close to being as good as Chik-fil-a's! Definitely not good enough to get stabbed over!

This is not why he was stabbed, they had prior beef (no pun intended) and they ended up fighting.
