Thug, 20, shoots McDonald’s worker in the face after argument over mom’s fries in New York

A 20-year-old man has been arrested for shooting a McDonald’s employee in the face outside a Brooklyn store, leaving him in critical condition after he stuffed himself with cold fries.

The unidentified worker, 23, is clinging to life at Brookdale Hospital after being shot around 7pm on Monday.

The incident happened when the alleged shooter’s mother started to bother the fast food worker because her potatoes were cold. At the same time, she was on FaceTime with her son, a source told him New York Post.

Shortly after, the son – who was nearby – entered the Fulton Street McDonald’s and started fighting with the employee.

The source told the NYPD that the dispute “escalated,” where the suspect pulled out a gun and shot the 23-year-old in the head.

Thick streams of bright red blood were seen running down the pavement as the worker lay unconscious on his back.

A man cradled the young worker’s head as witnesses waited for authorities. Other witnesses told the New York Daily News (NYDN) that a man used his shirt to help stop the victim’s bleeding.

The shooter is in custody, according to the New York Post. No charges have been filed yet.

The shooting took place outside the Fulton Street McDonald’s (pictured) in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn.

The shooter's mother allegedly got into an argument with the employee over French fries while FaceTime with her son. A short time later his son appeared and began to struggle with the victim and he was taken outside, where he shot the young man in the head.

The worker was described by colleagues as a ‘really nice guy’.

The department’s mother also told police what happened and “admitted to calling her son,” said a shopkeeper, who witnessed the attack.

A local business owner told the Post he heard a “pop” and “thought it was a firecracker” when the gun went off.

“I was scared. That’s why I didn’t run to the scene. You don’t know who’s around,” he told the Post. When he came out, he saw the young man lying on the ground.

“I feel like crying. Did you shoot someone over fries?’

Another witness asked where the 20-year-old got the gun before calling Fulton Street “the craziest street.”

“It’s getting worse, and the shooters are getting younger and younger. They have lost their sense of direction,” he told the Post. “It says something when a mother is with her son who carries a gun.”

The man also said that there were two officers “on the corner all week”, but they were not there at the time of the shooting.

“They should be on every corner every day,” he said.

Another man told ABC 7 “We need to get the proliferation of guns out of New York City.”

“We have to teach people, once again, civility and mutual respect and how important life is.”

New York City has seen an increase in crime in recent years since the start of the pandemic, and guns – especially ghost guns – have become a growing problem in the five boroughs.

The Supreme Court recently struck down NYC’s gun laws last month, overturning a 108-year-old law that required New Yorkers to have “good cause” to carry a concealed weapon.

The 6-3 ruling Thursday reversed a lower court’s opinion that the law allowed licenses to carry concealed weapons in public only to those who could demonstrate “good cause.”

Justice Clarence Thomas delivered the majority opinion, writing that the New York law prevented law-abiding citizens from exercising their Second Amendment rights.

New York isn’t alone in strictly limiting who can get a concealed carry license, and the new ruling will likely make it easier to legally carry a gun in major cities including Los Angeles, Boston and Baltimore.

Crime is up nearly 40 percent in the Big Apple, even as shootings are down 5.8 percent. NYC has a growing gun problem and many young people are finding themselves with guns

Crime and theft as a whole are up a whopping 39 percent. Rapes and assaults have also increased by 11 and 19 percent, respectively.

New York City Mayor Eric Adams, 61 years old, has repeatedly promised New Yorkers that he will fight crime, and that he will also campaign for re-election.

A few weeks ago, he promised the citizens again, stating: “We will turn the climate around, and when we do that, people will really see the progress we have made in other parts of the city.”

He also blamed the increase in violence on the city’s justice system.

“It’s unfortunate the environment we’re operating in … where the entire criminal justice apparatus has turned away from the public and citizens’ rights to live safely in their city,” he said. “We took almost 3,800 guns off the street, and many people who were carrying those guns were able to return to the street.”
