The mother of a 20-year-old man who allegedly shot a McDonald's employee in the neck during an argument over her cold fries claims it was self-defense and says she doesn't know why he had a gun on him. 

Michael Morgan, 20, was taken into custody shortly after the Monday evening shooting outside a Brooklyn McDonald's that left 23-year-old Matthew Webb clinging to life. 

Morgan was charged late Tuesday with attempted murder and criminal possession of a weapon, police said.

But Morgan's mother, Lisa Fulmore, told DailyMail.com that her son was acting in self-defense and that the McDonald's employee was still on the clock when he left the restaurant and went looking for her son following the spat.   

The tragic events unfolded around 7 p.m. on Monday shortly after Fulmore and the employees got into a heated argument when she returned to the store in Bedford-Stuyvesant to complain about her fries being cold. 

Fulmore, 40, said she was on FaceTime with her son who soon arrived at the fast-food joint and stormed inside to defend his mother despite her pleas to stay away. 

Morgan and the employee got into a dispute of their own inside the restaurant that moved outside the store and resulted in Morgan allegedly shooting the victim in the neck. Morgan was later arrested and Webb remains in critical condition at Brookdale University Hospital Medical Center.

Morgan's mother told DailyMail.com that her son had left the store and 10-15 minutes had passed before the McDonald's employee came over to her and asked where her son was before walking out of the store. 

'He went looking for my son,' she said. 'The next thing you know, maybe like 10 minutes later, you hear a gunshot. So I ran to the door.'

Fulmore added that her son and his girlfriend were at the nearby 'chicken spot' to get food when the McDonald's employee allegedly went looking for him.  

Morgan's girlfriend Camellia Dunlap, 18, was also charged following the incident with two counts of criminal possession of a weapon, but her exact role in the shooting was not immediately known.

Fulmore told the New York Post on Tuesday that she had spoken to her son after the shooting. 

'I talked to my son with the cops. My son is just saying that he gotta do what he gotta do and the [victim] came after him and whatever happened, happened,' she said.

Fulmore further explained that her son was only defending himself after the employee came looking for him minutes after the heated spat. 

'My son was gone from the restaurant and boy was asking me for my son while he was still on the clock... he went looking for my son,' she said. 

She told DailyMail.com that she didn't know about the 9mm gun he allegedly had on him.  

'I don’t promote him having a gun or shooting anyone,' she said. 'I feel really bad that this boy is fighting for his life is very sad I can’t fix this.'

The Brooklyn mom then explained what led up to the shooting after she ordered McDonald's on her phone and went to the location on Fulton Street to pick it up.

'The fries were cold,' Fulmore said. 'I asked the girl to change the french fries because the fries was cold. She went to the french fry machine for maybe 10 seconds and brought back fries, so I thought they was new fries, so I had left.

'I asked her, 'Why would you give me the same fries and just put one or two on top to make me think that you gave me new fries?' She started laughing, and all of them started laughing, acting like it's funny,' Fulmore said.

'I was like, 'What's funny? I paid for food, and I should get what I asked for.' They laughed at me.

'One of them was like, 'All of this over fries?' So now I'm arguing with them back and forth.

The boy where they cook the food at was like, 'You got all this food in your teeth,' ' Fulmore recalled — speaking of the employee who was later shot.

'So I said, 'You wanna take it out? You're saying I got all this food in my teeth, you wanna take it out?' 

When Fulmore asked to speak to the manager, she says she was met with laughter.  

'Everybody started laughing again,' she said.

'This is when I was on the phone with my son. I was like, "They in this McDonald's playing with me." I was like, I got kids their age, I'm not going to sit here and keep arguing with these little kids.

'He was like, 'I'm coming down the block.

'I was like, 'All right.' … Then I told him, 'No, don't come to McDonald's because I don't want you to get in trouble,' ' the mom said.

But he had already arrived in her defense.  

'He was like, "I'm coming in." So he came in. He heard them saying stuff to me, so
