TMZ has obtained some pretty shocking photos taken Friday at a Popeyes restaurant in Fairfax, VA - where it appears an employee behind the counter is fast at work putting together as many sandos as possible. Not enough counter space?

The owner claims that his store, which had only been open a few days, was slammed with a 100 sandwich order.

The incident is one of several to have occurred since Popeyes reintroduced the popular chicken sandwich. Police in Maryland say a man fatally stabbed another customer outside a Popeyes restaurant in a fight over cutting in line while waiting to buy the recently rereleased chicken sandwich at an Oxon Hill, Md., Popeyes on Monday night, November 4, 2019. 30-year-old Ricoh McClain is being sought by police, who have charged him with first-degree murder, second-degree murder, first-degree assault, second-degree assault, and reckless endangerment.

Prince George's County Police Chief Hank Stawinski detailed the moments leading up to the stabbing.

So long story short, Chick-fil-A came out victorious during our first Chicken Sandwich War and now that Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen has chicken sandwiches in stock, it is time to crown the Chicken Sandwich War Champion.

Employees said that a group of six-three men, two women, and a baby-were informed at the drive-thru that the restaurant's chicken sandwiches were sold out, according to ABC7.

The stunned customer now claims he emailed Popeyes to complain about the incident, but allegedly never received a response.

News station ABC13 was informed by the employees that the group tried to get inside the restaurant, but an employee managed to lock them out. When the gun was pulled out, the employees ran out the back.

No one was injured and the group left the scene in a blue Tahoe, Fox 26 reported.
