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.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.

The 52-year-old Waffle House waitress was just doing her job and enforcing the no-smoking policy at the franchise restaurant when she was shot by a customer she told to put out a cigarette. “Our associates are in shock over the whole incident,” said Pat Warner, vice- president of Waffle House’s corporate office in Atlanta. “It’s a senseless tragedy. However, Waffle House prohibits firearms inside their businesses unless the customer works in a law enforcement field or is in the military, Warner said. “I was just in shock when I found out,” Bonin said. “It gave me the chills. It’s just a weird feeling to think we might have been her last customers.” 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.
