*A man has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder after opening fire on a Waffle House cook who refused him service over a face mask.

Kelvin Watson, 27, reportedly visited the Waffle House in Aurora multiple times last Friday, but was denied service because he refused to wear a face mask/covering, PEOPLE reports.

During one of his visits, Watson had a mask but was not wearing it. After he was refused service again, he reportedly placed a semi-automatic handgun on the counter and told the cook, “I can blow your brains out right now,” the affidavit states.

“[The waitress] said the suspect’s friend, who paid their bill, told him to calm down and apologized for the suspect’s behavior,” according to the affidavit. “She said the suspect is at the restaurant every couple days and has never acted like this before.”

Watson returned to the eatery the following day and slapped the cook “across the face with an opened left hand,” the report states.

When the cook ran out the back door he was confronted by Watson who reportedly shot him once.

“The victim was transported to the hospital and is recovering from his injury,” police said.

“This case involves a senseless act of violence that should not be tolerated in any community,” Waffle House spokesperson Njeri Boss said in a statement. “We are very thankful that neither of our associates who were working when the incident occurred, suffered any life-threatening injuries. Our thoughts and well wishes remain with our associate who was injured and now is recovering at home.”

Watson posted a $100,000 bond on Tuesday. His is scheduled to appear in court on May 22, NBC News reports.
