When it comes to protecting yourself and others during a pandemic some people take it very seriously. Those who don’t are willing to go to the extreme to do things their own way.

Recently, a customer at a Waffle House in Aurora, Colorado, allegedly attacked and then shot a cook who told him to put a face mask on or he would not be served. The man is now facing a charge of attempted murder.

Kelvin Watson, the 27-year-old customer, was placed under arrest on Monday morning for the shooting. He was immediately booked on a charge of attempted first-degree murder.

According to local authorities, Watson made back-to-back visits to the Waffle House which was only open for carryout orders. The employees in the restaurant claim that he was hostile toward them because they told him to put a mask on or he would be denied service.

It was then that Watson allegedly pulled out a gun and placed it on the counter, telling the cook, “I could blow your brains out right now.”

Watson returned the very next night and the cook informed him he would not be served. Watson allegedly responded by slapping the cook and chased him to the back of the restaurant.

According to the court documents, Watson yelled at the cook, “You better shut the f*ck up and serve me,” before shooting him once in the abdomen area right outside the Waffle House. The cook was able to get away and called the police while running toward his home.

The cook was taken to the hospital and fortunately survived the shooting. A spokesperson for Waffle House says he was released later that Friday afternoon.
