NEW YORK - The NYPD says it has made two arrests after a Brooklyn McDonald's worker was left in critical condition after being shot in the neck during a dispute with a customer.
Police say Michael Morgan, 20, was arrested soon after the shooting and has been charged with attempted murder and criminal possession of a weapon.
Police also arrested Camellia Dunlap, 18, and charged her with two counts of criminal possession of a weapon.
The NYPD says it happened at a McDonald's on Fulton St. in the Bedford-Stuyvesant section. A female customer, alleged to be Morgan's mother, got into an argument with the 23-year-old employee over cold French fries.
The altercation ended up outside, when Morgan arrived and shot the worker in the neck, police said.
EMS rushed the victim to Interfaith Hospital. He was later moved to Brookdale Hospital due to the severity of his injuries.
There have been several high-profile incidents of violence against fast food workers.
In January a teenaged Manhattan Burger King worker was shot and killed.
19-year-old Kristal Bayron-Nieves was at the cash register of an East Harlem McDonald's when an armed man came in to rob the restaurant. She handed over $100 and he fatally shot her in the stomach.
In March, a Manhattan McDonald's worker was in critical condition after being stabbed multiple times with a box cutter.
Ezekiel Dunn-Jennings, 28, was charged with attempted murder, assault, and criminal possession of a weapon.
