The Brooklyn McDonald’s employee who was shot in the neck during a spat over cold fries has died, cops said Friday.
Matthew Webb, 23, “succumbed to his injuries” after being shot Monday outside the Bedford-Stuyvesant fast food restaurant where he worked, the NYPD said.
The attack “was ruled a homicide,” the force said Friday morning, stressing that “the investigation is still ongoing.”
Michael Morgan, 20, has previously been charged with attempted murder and criminal possession of a loaded firearm for blasting Webb in anger at his mother who was being served cold fries.
He is expected to face upgraded homicide charges, prosecutors said at a hearing Thursday, even before Webb’s death was confirmed.
Webb was working at the Fulton Street restaurant on Monday night when Morgan’s mother, Lisa Fulmore, complained to workers that her fries were cold and asked to speak to a manager.

When the workers started making fun of her, Fulmore was FaceTiming with Morgan, who came to the restaurant and argued with Webb who spilled onto the sidewalk.
Morgan punched Webb in the face and when he got up he pulled out a gun and punched him in the neck, prosecutors said.
His mother later told police that her son told her “he has to do what he has to do”.
The suspect’s girlfriend, Camellia Dunlap, was also charged with possession of weapons for allegedly giving the gun to Morgan. She was arraigned later Wednesday and held on $50,000 cash bond, after prosecutors said she admitted to owning the gun.
Morgan was also charged with an earlier murder after allegedly confessing during questioning about the McDonald’s shooting.
He allegedly killed Kevin Holloman in October 2021.
