Murder-suicide at Chick-fil-A restaurant

Early Wednesday morning, tragedy struck Rome, Georgia, when a local Chick-fil-A was the site of a double-fatal shooting.

Rome police reported to the scene around 7 a.m., investigating the domestic related death of Anthony Wayne Green, 56, and Cassie Lashae Davis, 39. The two were found dead after Green had shot Davis three times with a revolver.

According to the restaurant’s general manager, Greg Major, the incident was “horrific” and the loss of two lives has left the community in shock. The Rome Police Department is still actively investigating the shooting.

In November 2018, Chick-fil-A chairman Dan Cathy visited the property and posted on Instagram about installing a “little led door” to celebrate their re-opening.

Truett’s Chick-fil-A, the restaurant involved in the incident and the namesake of Chick-fil-A founder Truett Cathy, was opened in 2016. The locations offer a specialty Chick-fil-A menu and decorations made to honor Truett’s traditions, including family heirlooms, photos, and quotes displayed on the walls. There are currently four locations in the state of Georgia.
