who was the mother of the McDonald’s worker shot in the neck in a dispute over cold french fries she told The Post on Wednesday that she couldn’t get any rest young son battle to stay alive.

“I’m really not ready about this,” said the mother, who did not share her name, at Brookdale Hospital in Brooklyn where her son Matthew Jeremiah Webb has been in critical condition since he was shot Monday afternoon.

“I’m going back and forth with so many flashes of memory. My mind is not stable.”

Webb’s mother said she thinks she needs a “stronger family around me” as she prays for her son, 23, and waits for updates.

At the hospital on Wednesday morning, the distraught mother asked a priest to pray for her son in the hospital room.

“I hardly get any rest. I’m so tired, I need to call someone,” said the mother.

She declined to update The Post on her son’s condition but police said he remained in critical condition as of Wednesday morning.

Webb was working at the McDonalds at 1531 Fulton St. in Bed-Stuy on Monday when Michael Morgan, 20, allegedly shot him around 7 pm on the sidewalk outside the chain.

Morgan, 20, was charged late Tuesday with attempted murder and criminal possession of a weapon, authorities said. Camellia Dunlap, 18 – Morgan’s girlfriend – was charged with two counts of criminal possession of a weapon after she admitted to police that she gave the gun to her beau, law enforcement sources said.

The alleged shooter came to the McDonald’s after his mother, Lisa Fulmore, got into a tiff with Webb after serving her cold fries.

Big Blood workers began hassling over the smoothies and when they laughed at her for wanting to speak to a manager, her son entered the restaurant in defense of his mother, she told The Post in an exclusive interview. At some point, Webb went outside the restaurant and was allegedly shot by Morgan.

“My son is just saying he has to do what he has to do and the [victim] came after and whatever happened, happened,” Fulmore said.

Law enforcement sources noted that the victim had no prior arrests and there was no indication that he was carrying a weapon when he was shot.

Morgan has been arrested several times before, including for grand larceny in 2019 and assault and theft of service in 2018, police sources said.
