The New York Post reported:
The McDonald’s worker who was shot in the neck over cold french fries is brain-dead and on life support, prosecutors said Thursday, as a Brooklyn judge ordered his alleged assailant held without bail.
Michael Morgan, 20, is expected to face upgraded homicide charges for Monday’s Bedford-Stuyvesant shooting, in which he allegedly blasted victim Matthew Webb, 23, shortly after an argument about the french fries served to the suspect’s mother, prosecutors said.
“Your Honor, the people anticipate a homicide charge on this case given the victim is currently on life support. The victim has been transported to Brookdale Hospital and has been brain-dead,” Brooklyn Assistant District Attorney Luis Paternina told Judge Inga O’Neale during Morgan’s arraignment on attempted murder charges.
“The family now has to make the difficult decision [to take him off life support].”
Morgan, who was cuffed behind his back, looked down during the brief proceeding and didn’t speak.
The suspect’s girlfriend, Camellia Dunlap, has also been charged with weapons possession in connection with the case after she allegedly handed Morgan the gun prior to the shooting, prosecutors said. She was arraigned later on Wednesday and held on $50,000 cash bail, after prosecutors said she admitted to possessing the gun.
Morgan was taken into custody at his home Monday night and following hours of questioning, he confessed to the shooting and an unrelated 2020 homicide a few blocks from the McDonald’s that left Kevin Holloman, 28, dead, prosecutors alleged.
