Miss. Waffle House worker shot dead after telling customer not to smoke inside.

BILOXI, Miss. (AP) — Police in Biloxi say they have arrested a man who shot and killed a woman at a Waffle House restaurant after she asked him not to smoke. The 52-year-old Waffle House server was doing her job and enforcing the no-smoking policy at the restaurant when she was shot by a customer she told to put out a cigarette.

A waitress in a Biloxi Waffle House asked Johnny Mount, 45, to snuff out his cig but he refused and instead pulled out a handgun and shot the woman a little after 1 a.m. on Friday. “Julie was a friend to many as well as a valued member of the Waffle House team. Donnie Dobbs said the customer, Johnny Max Mount, 45, is accused of fatally shooting the waitress early Friday after he fired up a cigarette inside the business.

However, Waffle House prohibits firearms inside their restaurants unless the customer works in a law-enforcement field or is in the military, Warner said. She asked Bonin and his friends if they were having a good Thanksgiving. “She told us she was tired, but she was making the whole conversation about us,” he said.
