Police: Man Told to Wear Mask Shoots Denver Waffle House Cook
DENVER (KDVR-TV) — A man is accused of shooting a Waffle House employee in suburban Denver one night after being asked to wear a face covering inside the restaurant.
KDVR-TV reports 27-year-old Kelvin Watson was arrested Monday on a charge of attempted first-degree murder.
An arrest affidavit says employees told investigators Watson came to the restaurant shortly after midnight Thursday, and a waitress told him he needed to wear a mask to be served.
Watson allegedly returned and threatened the cook with a gun.
Police say he returned the following night, slapped the cook across the face and shot him outside of the restaurant.
The cook survived the shooting.
