Man shot, killed by co-worker at Little Caesars restaurant in Glendale, police say
GLENDALE, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) — A man is dead after he was allegedly shot by a co-worker late Friday morning at a Little Caesars location in Glendale.
Officers responded shortly before 11 a.m. to a business in the area of 43rd and Peoria avenues, where police say an employee shot a co-worker multiple times. When police arrived, a 28-year-old man was pronounced dead at the scene and the suspect was locked inside a bathroom. Officers have since taken a 40-year-old man into custody and no other injuries were reported.
“There were no customers inside the business when the shooting occurred, it was only employees and they did exit the business immediately,” said Gina Winn, Public Information Officer with the Glendale Police Department. “Right now, we are still trying to determine the cause of the shooting but it is believed to be an isolated incident and directed.” Police believe the shooting stemmed from some type of disagreement between the two men that began earlier this week. Detectives are investigating.
“We all have someone that we don’t necessarily get along with at work but really, is this the answer? No, because when you kill a person, you kill their family. That person doesn’t have a father or a mother anymore. Or a brother, or a sister. And for what? A conflict at work?” said Larry Shifflet who frequents the area.
Friday afternoon, Little Caesars released the following statement:
