What happens when a food fight gets nasty?

A Philadelphia man shot one of his friends after discovering the friend was eating his cake, The Philadelphia Daily News reported.

The men were driving in the east of the city in the early hours of Monday morning when the driver spotted his passenger chowing down on some cake.

The men argued, culminating in their getting out of the car and the driver shooting his passenger in the chest, police said.

"They weren't supposed to be sharing," an investigator said, according to The Philadelphia Daily News. "One was eating the other's food, they got into an argument and 'Bang! Bang!' "

The investigator denied a report that they were actually arguing over french fries. The food in question was a baked good, the investigator said.

The 31-year-old victim was listed in critical condition earlier in the week. The hospital could not provide an update. The driver was on the lam.
