A man accused of shooting a Brooklyn McDonald’s worker in the face over a whistle over cold fries has confessed to an earlier murder, one that he got away with using fast food, police sources said Wednesday.
Although being interviewed for shot fast food worker Matthew Webb in the face during an altercation outside a Bedford-Stuyvesant McDonalds on Monday, Michael Morgan admitted to committing the 2020 October 21 the murder for which he was long suspected.
That fatal shooting happened six blocks from a McDonald’s.
Police later Wednesday charged 28-year-old Kevin Holloman with killing Morgan, 20, who was shot in front of an apartment building on Herkimer St. near Rochester Ave. Holloman suffered “multiple” gunshot wounds, police said.
Investigators suspected that Morgan, who has numerous rap records, committed the 2020 murder. shooting, but prosecutors wanted more evidence, a police source said.
“We’ve been trying to arrest and get this guy off the street for a while,” said a police source. “The guy should be behind bars, should be in jail.”
Morgan was also charged with possession of a weapon in connection with Monday’s shooting, cops said. His girlfriend, 18-year-old Camellia Dunlap, was also arrested on weapons charges for allegedly running away with the gun after the shooting, police revealed Wednesday.
Morgan did not speak when officers led him out of the 79th Precinct post Wednesday afternoon.
Webb, 23, was working at the diner when Morgan’s 40-year-old mother became angry that her fries were cold, police said.
At the same time, she was on FaceTime with her son, Morgan. As the french fry flap increased, Morgan and Dunlap appeared in the restaurant and the lid on the fryers increased.
The argument eventually spilled outside the diner and across the street, where Morgan allegedly pulled out a 9mm. gun and shot Webb in the face.
“We were sitting here and we heard a ‘pop!'” a street vendor told the Daily News after seeing Webb bleeding on the ground after being shot.
Webb was well-liked enough that the street vendor knew of his good reputation among McDonald’s colleagues. “He was a hard worker,” said the seller. “He defended his co-workers.”
Morgan, who sources said has 13 prior arrests, gave his gun to Dunlap, who fled with it, cops said.
