    GWINNETT COUNTY, Ga. - UPDATE: Gwinnett County Sheriff's office arrested Tate on March 2. He faces aggravated assault and other charges.


    Gwinnett police are searching for a man accused of pointing a gun at a Pizza Hut manager.

    Police said the man, identified as Trontavious Tate, 19, was upset about an incorrect order at the restaurant on Singleton Road in Norcross. An employee fixed the order, and police said Tate got angrier when the manager told him to have a great day. 

    “The customer didn’t like this. This set him off for some sort of reason,” Gwinnett police Cpl. Michele Pihera said.

    Police said Tate went to his car and came back with a gun.

    Video shows the man knocking over two computer monitors and pointing a gun at the manager, with a child nearby.


    Police said Tate made comments to the manager, but they don’t know what he said.

    Tate pointed the gun at the manager again before leaving the store, police said.

    Shoppers in the area said they don’t understand how a wrong order could end with a man pulling out a gun and putting other people in danger.

    “No matter how mad you are, you don’t pull a gun. It’s a public place,” one shopper said.

    Police said Tate used a false name when he ordered, but they were still able to identify him.

    He faces aggravated assault and financial transaction fraud charges.

    Anyone with information on where Tate might be should call Crime Stoppers at 404-577-8477.
