Man Shoots Friend for Eating His Cake Cake, not fries, sparked fight, Philadelphia police say By Rob Quinn, Newser Staff Posted Jan 19, 2011 11:43 AM CST 26 comments Comments The type of cake involved isn't known, but police say it definitely wasn't fries. (Shutter Stock) (Newser) – The City of Brotherly Love is no place to try to eat another man's cake. Police in Philadelphia say two friends were sitting in a parked car in the wee hours of Monday morning when the passenger began eating some cake that belonged to the driver. The sweets swipe sparked an argument—and the driver shot his friend in the chest. The 31-year-old man is in the hospital in critical condition; police are still looking for the driver, who fled the scene, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Investigators deny earlier reports that french fries were the cause of the argument.
