A customer angry that he was served cold fries shot a McDonald’s employee in New York

A McDonald’s employee in New York is fighting between life and death after being shot in an altercation with a customer, after the fries were cold, police said Wednesday.

The episode took place on Monday night in Brooklyn, one of the five boroughs that make up the state of New York, a city where gunshots are frequent.

The police (NYPD) confirmed that Michael Morgan, 20, is in custody and charged with “attempted murder” and “possession of firearms.” Also, his 18-year-old companion is in custody for “possession of firearms.” According to the New York police and the New York Post, the 23-year-old McDonald’s worker has a serious gunshot wound that he received on Monday night and is hospitalized in a “critical condition.”

The problem started from a vulgar discussion between a 40-year-old woman and the employee, for the fries that the client had ordered and that were cold, according to the newspaper, citing judicial sources.

The customer, who was upset with the McDonald’s staff and the situation, called her son. He arrived at the restaurant, argued with the worker before the two went outside the establishment to continue the fight. At that moment, the client’s son pulled out a gun and shot the employee, according to the New York newspaper.

The aggressor was already a familiar face for the New York police department, since he had already been arrested several times for different crimes, unlike the victim, who had never been dealt with by the police.

With more than 400 million weapons in the hands of the population in the United States, 120 weapons for every 100 people, according to the NGO Small Arms Survey, the proliferation of firearms in large cities in the United States is a scourge. More than 45,000 people lost their lives in 2020 due to firearms
