The New York Post reported:
The 23-year-old victim, who is fighting for his life at Brookdale Hospital, was working in the fast-food joint at 1531 Fulton St. in Bedford-Stuyvesant around 7 p.m. Monday when he started getting hassled by a female customer over her fries, the source said.
The woman was FaceTiming her 20-year-old son, who was apparently nearby, as the argument went down, and he soon stormed into the restaurant and began fighting with the employee, the source alleged.
“The mom complained that her fries were cold,’’ the police source said.
“The mom was on FaceTime with her son, and he heard the dispute between her and the clerk. The son and the clerk got into a dispute inside, and it went outside.”
That’s when the woman’s son allegedly whipped out a gun and blasted the worker in the head, cops said.
The shooting was caught on surveillance video, the source said.
The employee is in critical condition and a 20-year-old person of interest is in custody, authorities said. No charges have been filed in connection with the case.
