NEW YORK – A suspected gunman is now facing charges in the.
Police say 20-year-old Michael Morgan is charged with attempted murder and criminal possession of a weapon.
Morgan allegedly shot 23-year-old Matthew Webb around 7 p.m. Sunday outside the restaurant on Fulton Street in Bedford-Stuyvesant.
Sources told CBS2 it started when the suspect’s mother confronted Webb about her fries being cold. She allegedly called her son over, who shot the worker in the neck.
He remains hospitalized with critical injuries.
CBS2 heard reaction from attorney Sanford Rubenstein, who represents the family ofwhile working the overnight shift at a Burger King in East Harlem.
“Cold French fries should not result in a shooting. At the end of the day, it’s gun violence all over this country, particularly in this city that has to be brought under control, and fast food restaurants are not the safe havens they used to be,” Rubenstein told CBS2’s Alecia Reid.
There have been other attacks against fast food workers this year. In March,with a box cutter while trying to break up a fight, and in July, three women when told extra dipping sauce would cost them less than $2.
