A former high school track star from Atlanta, Georgia was involved in a shooting at an IHOP restaurant in downtown Atlanta this morning. Christopher Garfield shot 3 people dead and attempted to burn down the restaurant because they apparently ran out of free pancakes.
Almost every IHOP across the country was giving out free pancakes today in celebration of National Pancake Day. Garfield allegedly entered the IHOP alone and sat down until the waiter attended him. According to one witness, Garfield then asked for “some muthaf*ckin free pancakes, that’s what i want b*tch” before the waiter told him they were out of batter and pancakes. Garfield then took out a .42 glock and shot the waitress and 2 other diners to death before he lit a match and threw it. Everyone evacuated quickly including Garfield.
Garfield, who once held the Georgia state record in the 40 Meter race, is currently putting his speed to the test as he is on the run and considered armed and dangerous. It is also said that IHOP might stop giving out free pancakes on National Pancake Day which is celebrated every year.
