Alabama man arrested for shooting at woman over egg roll
BIRMINGHAM, Alabama (CNN) — Police say the owner of a Chinese and Seafood restaurant has been arrested.
He is now charged with shooting at a young woman, who claims she found a roach in an egg roll.
Dennison Avenue's 'Good Friends' Chinese and Seafood Resstaurant is the center of a Birmingham Police Investigation.
Jatari Walker said she went into the restaurant and bought dinner.
"I bit into my egg roll and I discovered there was a roach inside."
"I went back to get a refund and she woudln't give me my money back so I sat it on the counter and it rolled onto the floor. And the lady who was taking an order was like, 'now where's the roach at?'"
Walker told police that as she turned to leave, the owner, Chun Ching pulled out a gun and fired.
"What if the bullet wouldn't have went in the wall and it woulda hit me and I wouldn't have been able to go home to my child?"
Detectives showed up and put Ching behind bars.
"I would like to see them shut down because i fyou were this hysterical over a roach, over a roach in a egg roll, what makes me or anybody else feel that folks can come in your restaurant and you just go ballistic again?"
Despite the series of events, 'Good Friends' seems to have kept its popularity. The restaurant had a steady stream of customers and a line around the building for the drive-thru.
Workers at the restaurant didn't want to talk to about what happened.
It's still shocked, it's still in my mind. I could've been gone," said Walker.
