KNOXVILLE, Tenn. - A customer who was upset over his tab fired several shots into a Hooters restaurant Saturday, killing one person and seriously wounding a manager, police said.
Police were searching for the man, who left on foot just after midnight, Lt. Kenny Miller said.
Managers asked the man to leave after he refused to pay his bill. He then went outside and started firing a .40-caliber handgun at the building, police said.
The shots hit another customer identified as 35-year-old Stacey Sherman of Applegate, Mich. Sherman, who police believed was visiting family for the holidays, died later at a hospital.
The other victim, a 24-year-old Hooters manager named Kris Key, was hospitalized in serious condition.

Except--to say that the more news items I read about the place* the more grateful I am I made it out of there without getting a bullet in the brain.
*And this seems like a good time to tell you that I don't go looking for them, honestly, they just find me!
