Man accused of shooting a cook in restaurant for telling him to wear a mask in Aurora
Authorities said that a man was arrested for shooting a Waffle House employee because he was asked to wear a mask inside the restaurant by the employee.
Kelvin Watson, 27, was arrested by the Aurora Police on a charge of first-degree on Monday.
According to the arrest affidavit, Watson came after midnight on Thursday in the restaurant, and the waitress asked her to wear a mask to get served. The restaurant was only offering carry-out service.
Then Watson returned with a mask in hands but did not put it on, and when he was again asked to wear the mask, he put a small gun on the counter and told the cook that he could "blow your brains out," said a witness in the affidavit.

Superfine Pizza offering delicious pizzas with special offer of 20%, valid for limited time
The owner of Downtown LA's Superfine Pizza and renowned restaurant Rossoblu Chef Steve Samson told us that he had to change all the ways to run business. Rossoblu restaurant had to be closed due to closures, but Superfine was able to sustain as it is primarily a delivery and takeaway restaurant.
Samson said: "We've been able to kind of eliminate pretty much all over the counter contact. All the sales have to be made online, so people can just pull up, and we'll deliver the Pizza right into their car."
Samson, in these times, found a way to utilize Rossoblu to make meals for his employees who are working or furloughed. This was a very innovative idea to provide help to his employees.
"I cook a meal with some of my guys at Rossoblu, we offer kind of an essentials package every Friday... we have our team come in and pick up these kits that we've put together for them," said Samson.
