The son, listening in as his mother was arguing with store employees, then appeared out of nowhere outside the McDonald’s and entered the fast-food fracas rising, pulling a 9mm handgun and shooting the worker on Fulton St. near Throop Ave., according to police .

“We were sitting and we heard a ‘pop!'” said a street vendor who described the shooting victim, bleeding from a bullet wound, lying on the concrete after the gunfire.

“In McDonald’s, they had an argument against French fries … He was working hard. He was protecting his co-workers.”

The victim was hit in the side of the neck, just above the jawline, and was listed in critical condition Tuesday at Brookdale University Hospital, authorities said.

“(A) Very nice guy,” one of the victim’s co-workers said of the McDonald’s employee.

The mother told police she heard the shot but did not see the shooting, sources said. One shell casing was found at the scene.
