He was wanted on murder charges in the death of 28-year-old Kevin Tyrell Davis. UPPER MARLBORO, Md. (AP) — The suspect accused of fatally stabbing a man who was cutting in line for Popeyes chicken sandwiches in Maryland has been arrested.

Authorities who responded to the scene administered first aid to Davis until an ambulance arrived, but he died a short time later.

McClain is facing charges of first-degree murder, second-degree murder, first-degree assault, second-degree assault and reckless endangerment.

Popeyes recently brought back the sandwich after it went viral on social media in August and sold out in just two weeks. The fast-food chain said in a statement last week to NBC News that it was unsure what caused the dispute, but that "there is no reason for someone to lose their life on a Monday night in a parking lot."

"Our thoughts are with the victim's family and friends and we are fully cooperating with local authorities," the company said. Authorities believe McClain is armed and dangerous and urge the public to call 911 if he is spotted.
