Waiter shot dead by customer ‘for being too slow’

A waiter was shot dead by a customer who lashed out because he was kept waiting for a sandwich.

The 28-year-old victim was hit in the shoulder and died at the scene.

It happened at the Mistral pizza and sandwich bar in the Paris suburb of Noisy-le-Grand.

The gunman, who a witness said lost his temper ‘as his sandwich wasn’t prepared quickly enough’, fled the scene.

A murder investigation is under way.

Horrified Paris residents gathered outside the Mistral in the aftermath of the shooting on Friday.

One said: ‘He was killed for a sandwich?’

Another added: ‘It is sad. It’s a quiet restaurant, without any problems. It just opened a few months ago.’

Some residents, however, said there had been an upsurge of crime in the area with an increase of drug-dealing and drunkenness on the streets.
