Johnny Max Mount is accused of shooting and killing a waitress who told him not to smoke inside.

A Mississippi man allegedly shot and killed a Waffle House employee after she wouldn’t let him smoke inside the building.

A waitress in a Biloxi Waffle House asked Johnny Mount, 45, to snuff out his cig but he refused and instead pulled out a handgun and shot the woman a little after 1 a.m. on Friday.

Police arrested Mount at the scene. He had the 9mm pistol concealed beneath his shirt, cops said.

Officials did not immediately release the name of the 52-year-old victim, but Waffle House referred to her as Julie in a press release.

“This senseless tragedy is a shock for the Waffle House family,” the company’s statement said.

“Julie was a friend to many as well as a valued member of the Waffle House team. She will be greatly missed. Our prayers are with her family, friends, co-workers and customers.”

Mount has been charged with first degree murder and is being held at the Harrison County Jail on $ 2 million bond.

    The 1856 British Guiana one-cent magenta is a tiny octagonal red inch-wide stamp. Philatelic experts say that when it is auctioned at Sotheby’s in New York on June 17, this singular postal artifact is expected to fetch something around $ 20 million, the largest price ever paid for a stamp. By weight and size, it may be the most valuable object in the world. The stamp is just one souvenir of the strange legacy of John E. du Pont, a man who had everything money could buy but threw it away in one moment of blind violence.
