A McDonald’s worker has died after being in critical condition since Monday night, when he was shot in the neck because of a disagreement over cold fries.

Police said Matthew Webb, 23, died from his injuries on Wednesday, as reported by CBS News.

Sources told CBS Webb was shot on the job after a woman complained about her fries being cold.

The shooting occurred around 7 p.m. on Aug. 1 outside a Brooklyn McDonald’s on Fulton Street in Bedford-Stuyvesant. According to sources, a woman was angry that her fries were cold and approached a worker, identified as Matthew Webb, and started arguing with him.

The woman was reportedly FaceTiming her son at the time, and he is accused of stopping by the restaurant later on and shooting Webb in the neck.

Webb was rushed to Brookdale Hospital and the suspect was taken into custody.

On Wednesday, police announced that they arrested 20-year-old Michael Morgan for attempted murder and weapons charges in connection with the shooting.

Police also arrested Morgan’s 18-year-old girlfriend, who is accused of hiding the gun used in the shooting. She was booked for criminal possession of a weapon.

After questioning Morgan, police ended up adding even more murder and weapons charges to his rap sheet.

Sources told CBS News that Morgan had been previously questioned in the October 2020 fatal shooting of 28-year-old Kevin Holloman, but there wasn’t enough evidence to arrest him at the time.

When Morgan was detained for the McDonald’s murder, police again asked him about the 2020 shooting and Morgan allegedly made statements that implicated himself.

Some of Webb’s colleagues described him as a good guy. The workers also mentioned being on edge about returning to work in the aftermath of the violence.

“That something could happen like that over something so simple as food, like that’s crazy,” one person in the neighbourhood said.

“He was working, at work, this happened at work? It’s kind of sad, because he’s trying to make a living,” another person added.
