Man who shot McDonald’s worker in New York confesses to unrelated murder

The man accused of shooting a Brooklyn McDonald’s worker in the face during a fight over cold fries has confessed to an earlier murder, a murder he had gotten away with until the fast-food altercation, law enforcement sources said Wednesday. .

While being questioned for shooting fast-food worker Matthew Webb in the face during a fight that spilled over outside the Bedford-Stuyvesant McDonalds on Monday, Michael Morgan confessed to a long-suspected homicide on October 21, 2020. a long time.

That fatal shooting took place six blocks from McDonald’s.

On Wednesday, police charged Morgan, 20, with killing Kevin Holloman, 28, who was shot outside an apartment building on Herkimer St. near Rochester Ave. Holloman suffered “multiple” gunshot wounds, the police said.

Investigators suspected Morgan, who has an extensive criminal history, of committing the 2020 shooting, but prosecutors wanted more evidence, a law enforcement source said.

“For a while we tried to make an arrest and get this guy off the street,” a police source said. “The guy should be behind bars, he should be in jail.”

Morgan was also charged with weapons possession in Monday’s shooting, police said. Her girlfriend, 18-year-old Camellia Dunlap, was also arrested on weapons charges for allegedly running away with her gun after the shooting, police said Wednesday.

Morgan did not speak as officers led him out of the 79th Precinct police station Wednesday afternoon.

Webb, 23, was working at the restaurant when Morgan’s 40-year-old mother complained that her fries were cold, police said.

At the same time, he was talking to his son Morgan on FaceTime. As the avalanche of fries increased, Morgan and Dunlap appeared at the restaurant as the fin of fries increased.

The argument eventually spilled out of the restaurant and across the street, where Morgan allegedly pulled a 9mm. pistol and shot Webb in the face.

“We were sitting here and we heard ‘pop!’” a street vendor who saw Webb on the ground bleeding after the shots told the Daily News.

Webb was well-liked enough that the traveling salesman knew of his good reputation among his colleagues at McDonald’s. “He was a hard worker,” the vendor said. “He was defending his co-workers.”

Morgan, who sources say has a history of 13 prior arrests, turned his gun over to Dunlap, who ran off with it, police said.
