A witness to a shooting in a Detroit, Michigan, fast food restaurant says shots were fired because the business lacked fried mushrooms on its menu.

Fox2Detroit reports the incident began around 2:30 a.m., when a group of individuals came into a Nicky D’s Coney Island and asked for fried mushrooms. Upon being told that friend mushrooms were not available they left, only to return a short time later with a gun.

Shoots were fired and a customer in his 40s was hit in the face. He is in critical condition.

WXYZ interviewed a witness who explained how the female in the group became outraged over the lack of fried mushrooms:

ClickonDetroit reports that the two males and the female fled the scene in a black Ford F-150.
