Authorities say a customer stabbed a South Carolina restaurant staff member after an argument over a food order turned violent.

Greenville County Sheriff's Office Lt. Ryan Flood says deputies determined the argument broke out between a staff member and 26-year-old James Edward Lowery Jr. over a food order Monday.

The argument became physical, and Lowery stabbed the victim at Sr. Salsa Mexican Restaurant. Witnesses told investigators they heard Lowery say he was ``going to kill'' the victim before stabbing him. Flood says the victim hit Lowery during the fight and caused injuries, which investigators determined were in self-defense.

Both people were taken to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Lowery was charged with offenses, including attempted murder. It's unclear if he has a lawyer who could comment.
