A 36-year-old man has since been arrested in relation to the incident. None of the three people involved have been formally identified by police.
Willie Glenn, the owner of the Subway branch, told Fox 5 Atlanta: “Believe it or not, it was about too much mayonnaise on his sandwich.
“He decided to escalate the situation and from there – that’s when all hell broke loose.”
Glenn added that the injured employee’s five-year-old son was in the Subway at the time.
He also said the on duty manager fired back but was unable to hit the shooter.
“I don’t know what the world is coming to especially with our youth. They seem to be so hot headed,” he went on.
“Everybody wants to carry a gun. Everybody wants to scare somebody with a gun. It’s scary out here.”

Interim Chief Of Police Darin Schierbaum confirmed that an argument led to the shocking incident.
He told WSB-TV: “An argument leads to someone picking up a weapon and firing that gun, leaving someone dead or someone critically injured.
“We need individuals to talk out their disputes, walk away and do not pick up guns.
“We can take down drug operations that breed violent crime, we can dismantle gang organizations that breed violent crime, we can stop robbery crews that breed violent crime, we cannot stop someone who is mad because there is too much mayonnaise on their sandwich.”
