Cops: Man shot for eating cake

One Philadelphia man did not want his friend to have his cake and eat it too today.

Two friends were in a car on 2nd Street near Callowhill around 2:40 a.m., when the passenger in the vehicle began eating cake the driver had in his car, according to police. This enraged the driver and the two began arguing, a Central Detectives investigator said.

They got out of the vehile and the driver shot his friend once in the chest - all over some cake, according to the investigator.

"They weren't supposed to be sharing" he said. "One was eating the other's food, they got into an argument and 'Bang! Bang!'"

The investigator denied a conflicting report that french fries were at the center of the argument. While food was the catalyst, he said, it was over baked goods, not fried.

Police said the 31-year-old victim was rushed to Hahnemann University Hospital, where he remains in critical condition. The driver fled in his silver vehicle and remains on the lam, police said.
