Bedford Stuyvesant, Brooklyn (WABC) – New York police say the victim of the McDonald’s shooting has died. The Brooklyn shooting is now being investigated as a murder.
Matthew Webb, 23, of Queens died of his injuries on Wednesday, two days after he was shot.
Prosecutors indicated the possibility of raising the level of charges against the accused gunman.
The accident occurred at about 7:00 p.m. Monday inside the McDonald’s restaurant in Bedford-Stuyvesant.
Michael Morgan, 20, is charged with attempted murder and possession of a criminal weapon in connection with the incident at a fast food restaurant on Monday.
Officials say Morgan’s mother was at the restaurant and complained to the victim, a 23-year-old man who worked behind the counter, that her french fries were cold.
The fight escalated, and the woman named Morgan, who the police say went to the restaurant to confront the worker and ended up shooting him outside, escalates.
Morgan was arrested along with 18-year-old Camellia Dunlap, who is facing weapons possession charges.
While being questioned about the McDonald’s shooting, Morgan reportedly made statements about an unsolved murder.
He is now charged with the murder of a 28-year-old man in October 2020 in Brooklyn.
He is charged with criminal murder and possession of a weapon in the fatal shooting of Kevin Holloman on Herkimer Street.
Morgan has long been seen in murder. The 2020 murder was just six blocks away from the McDonald’s shooting.
He has 13 previous arrests.
The shooting is the latest in a number of recent incidents of violence against fast food restaurant workers.
In May, a McDonald’s worker was stabbed multiple times while defending other employees from an unruly customer in East Harlem.
And in January, 19-year-old Crystal Byron Nevis was fatally shot during an armed robbery inside a Burger King in East Harlem.
