The Brooklyn McDonald’s worker who was shot in the neck in a spat over cold fries has died, police said Friday.
Matthew Webb, 23, “succumbed to his injuries” after he was shot Monday outside the Bedford-Stuyvesant fast-food restaurant where he worked, the NYPD said.
The attack “has been ruled a homicide,” the force said early Friday, stressing that “the investigation is still ongoing.”
Michael Morgan, 20, is already charged with attempted murder and criminal possession of a loaded firearm for blowing up Webb in anger over his mother being served cold fries.
He is expected to face upgraded murder charges, prosecutors said in a court hearing Thursday, even before Webb̵[ads1]7;s death was confirmed.
Webb was struggling at the Fulton Street eatery 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 laughing at her, Fulmore was FaceTiming with Morgan, who arrived at the restaurant and got into a fight with Webb who spilled onto the sidewalk.
Morgan punched Webb in the face, and when he got back up, pulled out a gun and shot him in the neck, prosecutors claimed.
His mother later told police her son told her “he has to do what he has to do.”
The suspect’s girlfriend, Camellia Dunlap, is also charged with gun possession for allegedly giving Morgan the gun. She was arraigned later Wednesday and held on $50,000 bail, after prosecutors said she admitted to having the weapon.
Morgan was also charged with an earlier murder after confessing under questioning about the McDonald’s shooting.
He allegedly killed Kevin Holloman in October 2021.
