[Updated] Say What Now? Employee Shoots Co-Worker at Kandi Burruss’ Blaze Steak and Seafood Reataurant

An argument between coworkers turned into a shooting at Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker’s Blaze Steak and Seafood restaurant in Atlanta.

via 11 Alive:

South Fulton Police Lt. Rogers said an employee was involved in some sort of fight and fired their gun, striking another employee in the arm. They were taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. 

Meanwhile, police are looking for the shooter who left before police arrived. 

The restaurant opened in 2020 and is named after the couple’s daughter. They also own Old Lady Gang Southern Cuisine in East Point. 

Three people were shot in 2020 after a man entered the Old Lady Gang restaurant and targeted another man, East Point Police Capt. Allyn Glover said at the time. Two bystanders were also shot in that incident and all three victims suffered non-life-threatening injuries.  

Both restaurants have been featured multiple times on the Bravo reality TV show.

We hope they find the shooter.

Update: Kandi’s cousin Chef Melvin has been identified as the gunshot victim.

He is currently hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries.
