The New York City McDonald’s employee who was reportedly shot in the neck following an argument over an order of cold french fries has died from his injuries, police confirmed to FOX Business on Friday.
Matthew Webb, 23, of Queens, was shot Monday outside a McDonald’s restaurant in the city’s Brooklyn borough in an incident that the NYPD is now investigating as a homicide.
"We are heart-broken by the passing of our crew member as a result of this senseless act, and we are thinking of his family at this time," Roy Iraci, the owner and operator of the McDonald's location, told FOX Business in a statement. "We will continue to cooperate with authorities as their investigation moves forward."
The alleged gunman, 20-year-old Michael Morgan, already faces charges of attempted murder and criminal possession of a weapon in relation to the shooting.
