Friday, police revealed that the Brooklyn McDonald’s employee Matthew Webb who was shot in the neck during a dispute over cold fries has died.
According to the NYPD, 23-year-old Matthew Webb “died due to his injuries” after being shot on Monday outside the Bedford-Stuyvesant fast-food restaurant where he worked.
The attack has been classified as a homicide, the police stated early Friday morning, adding that “the investigation is ongoing.”
Michael Morgan, who is 20 years old, has already been charged with trying to kill Webb and illegally having a gun that was loaded. He did this because his mom got cold fries, which made him angry.
Even before Webb’s death was verified, prosecutors said at a court hearing on Thursday that he would likely face enhanced homicide charges.
Monday evening, Webb was working at the Fulton Street restaurant when Morgan’s mother, Lisa Fulmore, complained that her fries were cold and requested to speak with the manager.
Fulmore was FaceTiming with Morgan when the staff started laughing at her. Morgan had just entered the restaurant and was fighting with Webb when it spilled out onto the pavement.
Prosecutors claim that after punching Webb in the face, Morgan drew a revolver on him and shot him in the neck as soon as he stood up.
Later, his mom told the police that he told her “he has to do what he has to do.”
Camellia Dunlap, the suspect’s girlfriend, is also accused of possessing weapons after reportedly giving Morgan the gun. After the prosecution claimed she admitted to having the gun, she was arraigned later on Wednesday and was being held on $50,000 cash bail.
Morgan was also charged with a murder he allegedly admitted to when he was being questioned about the McDonald’s shooting.
In October 2021, he is said to have killed Kevin Holloman.
