OXON HILL, Md. (WMAR) — Fifteen seconds is all it took for one man to kill another over a chicken sandwich at a Popeyes.

It happened around 7 p.m. Monday at the Oxon Hill location on Livingston Road.

Prince George's County Police say 28-year-old Kevin Tyrell Davis was cutting in front of other customers in a line specifically for the re-released Popeyes chicken sandwich.

Another customer confronted Davis about skipping the line, which led to a short verbal argument.

The two men then took their dispute outside in front of the store, at which point Davis was stabbed one time in the upper body. He later died at an area hospital.

Police say the entire confrontation lasted about 15 seconds.

A knife was recovered at the scene.

The adult male suspect's name has not been released, but police have put out still photos of him that were captured on surveillance inside the restaurant.

Police are also looking to question a woman they believe was with the suspect at the time of the incident.
