An upset Baltimore man, Daniel Brian Blackwell, 55, triggered an hours-long standoff with police after opening fire in his home because someone took a bite out of his grilled cheese sandwich.
Baltimore County officers were called to at the home in Dunkirk, Maryland in response to a reported domestic incident later Sunday evening, Baltimore County police spokesman Cpl. Shawn Vinson told WBAL-TV.
Blackwell's wife and three children emerged from the home on East Baltimore street and told cops shot were fired.
We've all seen the rainbow bagel, but now there's a RAINBOW GRILLED CHEESE. Good thing it doesn't exist in the US (yet), because obviously people would be lining up for it. Hong Kong #EEEEEATS 📸: @hkfoodiexblogger
This is our signature grill cheese toast - "KALAful choice, made of tomatoes (red), basil (green) and lavender (blue) cheese, all made out of natural food colouring. The ideas is to get people eating with fun!! We selected a mild version of those coloured cheese, so that the flavour won't be too strong to be resisted by any particular. However for those whom are big fan of those food flavour, we recommend you to try out any of those particular flavour on its own, to really tickle your tastebuds.
我地既特色吐司 "開心首選" 係由紅色番茄味, 綠色羅勒葉味, 藍色薰衣草味組成。 這幾款法國進口的顏色芝士都係經過我地精挑細選採購回來。選用比較溫和既味道，是希望可以比較容易讓香港的大眾接受。 如果你是想試出其真正味道，我們會建議大家點選個別的味道，作為吐司的口味; 例如"芝心蕃尋味"為你件吐司的口味，再加一至兩款配料另其口感更豐富。

"Apparently, the man had made a grilled cheese sandwich and either the wife or the daughter, we're not exactly sure who, but somebody, one of the females in the house, took a bite of his sandwich, and apparently, that enraged him to the point that he fired shots in the house," said Vinson.
Despite being equipped with a ammunition holster around his waist, police say Blackwell retreated the house peacefully after barricading himself inside the home for nearly four hours.
