“I’m really not ready for this,” the mother, who did not give her name, said at Brookdale Hospital in Brooklyn, where her son Matthew Jeremiah Webb has been in critical condition since Monday night’s shooting.
“I just go back and forth with so many lightning bolts on my mind. My mind is unstable.”
Webb’s mom said she believes she needs “a stronger family around me” as she prays for her 23-year-old son and waits for updates.
At the hospital on Wednesday morning, the distraught mother asked a pastor to pray with her son in the hospital room.
“I hardly get any rest. I’m so tired, I have to call someone,” said the mother.
She declined to inform the Post of her son’s condition, but police said he was in critical condition as of Wednesday morning.
Webb was working at McDonalds at 1531 Fulton Street in Bed-Stuy on Monday when he was allegedly shot by Michael Morgan, 20, on the sidewalk in front of the chain around 7pm.
Morgan, 20, was charged late Tuesday with attempted murder and criminal firearm possession, authorities said. Camellia Dunlap, 18 – Morgan’s girlfriend – has been charged with two counts of criminal possession after she admitted to police that she gave the gun to her boyfriend, law enforcement sources said.

The alleged shooter came to McDonald’s after his mother, Lisa Fulmore, got into a fight with Webb after she was served cold fries.
Fulmore ran chore workers over the fries and when they laughed at her for asking to speak to a manager, her son burst into the restaurant in defense of his mother, she told the Post in an exclusive interview. At one point, Webb walked outside the restaurant and was then allegedly shot by Morgan.
“My son just says he has to do what he has to do and this [victim] came after him and whatever happened happened,” Fulmore said.
Law enforcement sources noted the victim had not been previously arrested and there is no indication she was carrying a gun when she was shot at.
Morgan has previously been arrested on multiple counts, including grand larceny charges in 2019 and assault and theft in 2018, police sources said.
