A Brooklyn McDonald’s employee who was shot in the neck a spat out on cold fries died, police said Friday.
Matthew Webb, 23 “died of injuries” after he was shot Monday outside the Bedford-Stuyvesant fast-food restaurant where he worked, the NYPD said.
The attack “has been ruled a homicide,” the force said early Friday, stressing that “the investigation is ongoing.”
Michael Morgan, 20, has already been charged with attempted murder and possession of a loaded firearm for blowing up Webb after he was angry that his mother had served him cold fries.
He is expected to face renewed murder charges, prosecutors said during a court hearing Thursday, before Webb’s death was confirmed.
Webb was working at the Fulton Street eatery Monday night when Morgan’s mother, Lisa Fulmore, complained to staff that her fries were cold and asked to speak to the manager.
