Brooklyn McDonald’s employee shot dead after argument with customer

A McDonald’s employee in Brooklyn was shot in the face outside the fast food restaurant after arguing with a customer, sources said.

The 23-year-old was working at the fast food restaurant at 1531 Fulton St. in Bed-Stuy when he got into an argument with a female customer inside the restaurant around 7 p.m., according to police sources.

The fight spilled outside and the woman’s adult son pulled out a gun and shot the worker in the face, police said.

The victim was rushed to Brookdale Hospital in critical condition.

Police arrested a 20-year-old boy at the scene. No charges have been filed.

The victim is not the first fast food worker to be shot on the job in the city this year.

In January, 19-year-old Kristal Bayron-Nieves was shot dead by an armed robber while working the cashier at Burger King in East Harlem. The teenager had just started working at the restaurant and handed over $100 cash to the robber before he shot him in the chest.
