The gunman suspected in the brazen Times Square shooting was busted Wednesday some 975 miles away in Florida — while chowing down on McDonald’s burgers and fries with his girlfriend, according to officials.
Farrakhan Muhammad, 31, was collared by US Marshals and members of the NYPD’s Regional Fugitive Task Force in the parking lot of the burger franchise in Starke, just outside Jacksonville, as he and his gal pal sat in the still-running car, police and sources said.
“He did not get to finish his Happy Meal,” a federal law enforcement source with knowledge of the arrest joked to The Post.
Police said the illegal CD peddler and career criminal had “altered his appearance” by shaving his head in the aftermath of Saturday’s broad daylight bloodshed at the Crossroads of the World that left three people, including a 4-year-old girl, injured.
“While there is no joy today, there is justice,” NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea said as he announced Muhammad’s arrest Wednesday during a press conference at police headquarters.
