Police in Houston are reportedly searching for a man who pulled a gun on employees at a Popeyes restaurant after they ran out of chicken sandwiches.
On Monday night, the Houston Police Department published a tweet regarding an incident at the Popeyes, which has surged in popularity since the introduction of its first nationwide chicken sandwich last month.
Police said in the tweet a man pulled a gun on employees after learning they had no more sandwiches.
According to local station KTRK, a group of people attempted to get inside the store after they were told the bad news about the sandwiches at the drive-thru.
“It was more of an aggravated assault because he was displaying a weapon and threatened employees,” Houston Police Lt. Larry Crowson told KTRK.
No one was injured during the incident, reports KHOU. Witnesses say the group left the Popeyes in a blue SUV. Anyone with information is asked to contact police.
Meanwhile, Popeyes confirmed last week it had sold out of chicken sandwiches.
