A CUSTOMER SHOT a waiter dead at an eatery on the outskirts of Paris, apparently enraged at being made to wait for a sandwich, a source close to the investigation said today. 

The waiter’s colleagues called police after he was shot in the shoulder with a handgun in the Noisy-le-Grand suburb east of Paris last night, the source said.

Attempts to revive the 28-year-old failed and he died at the scene of the pizza and sandwich restaurant. 

The gunman, who a witness said lost his temper “as his sandwich wasn’t prepared quickly enough”, fled the scene.

Police told AFP a murder investigation has been launched. 

The shooter is believed to still be on the run.
