McDonald's worker shot after serving customer cold fries

He had his life support withdrawn on Friday

A man has died after being shot during his shift at a McDonald’s restaurant when he served a customer cold fries.

Matthew Webb, 23, was shot in the neck on Monday (August 1) by the customer’s son outside the restaurant he worked at in the Bedford-Stuyvesant district of Brooklyn, New York.

He died on Friday (August 5) after doctors turned off his life support.

Webb was involved in a dispute with Michael Morgan, 20, after he apparently served Morgan’s mother a cold portion of fries.

Footage obtained by the New York Police Department (NYPD) shows Morgan attack Webb before shooting him. He then fled the scene and tried to dispose of his clothes, according to prosecutors.

Although Webb was rushed to hospital, he was declared brain-dead shortly after.

Morgan had already been arrested and charged with attempted murder and criminal possession of a loaded firearm. He was expected to face upgraded homicide charges, even before Webb’s passing.

Webb had been working at the McDonald’s when Morgan’s mum, Lisa Fulmore complained that her fries were cold and asked to speak to a manager.

According to the New York Post, staff began laughing at her. She was on a video call with her son at the time, and he went to the restaurant.

Morgan then got into a fight with Webb that ended with the restaurant worker being shot in the neck outside on the street.

His mum reportedly told police that before shooting Webb, her son told her he “gotta do what he gotta do.”

Morgan was allegedly handed the gun by his girlfriend, Camellia Dunlap.

He was arrested after fleeing the scene and is being held without bail. Prosecutors said he confessed to Webb’s killing and an unrelated homicide just a few blocks from the McDonald’s in October 2021.

Dunlap has been charged with possession of a weapon. She is being held on $50,000 bail.
