Police in Prince George’s County, Md., are searching for the suspect in a fatal stabbing that occurred this week at a Popeyes restaurant.
The suspect, shown in a photo released by police, was wearing a black coat, blue and yellow shirts and a black cap. Police are also looking for the woman who appears with him in the photo.
“We are looking for a male, and that male knows who he is,” Prince George’s County Police spokeswoman Jennifer Donelan said at a news conference Monday. “He knows what he did here tonight, and he needs to do the right thing and he needs to step up and turn himself in.”
Police responded to the restaurant Monday evening after receiving a report that the stabbing victim, Kevin Tyrell Davis, 28, of Oxon Hill, had cut in line to order the restaurant chain’s newly rereleased chicken sandwich.
The two men began arguing and left the line. As they walked toward the exit, the suspect stabbed Davis.
After the stabbing, the suspect and the unidentified woman fled the scene.
Police later said the entire confrontation took about 15 seconds.
When officers arrived, Davis was found suffering from a single stab wound. He was transported to a local hospital and died less than an hour later.
