The mother of a man charged with shooting a McDonald’s employee over cold fries is now blaming the victim for getting shot.
Lisa Fulmore, a 40-year-old woman, detailed the situation which led up to her son, Michael Morgan, allegedly shooting a local fast-food employee; a situation that seemingly stemmed from cold fries and unfriendly staff.
In a statement to the New York Post, Fulmore explained that she had gone to pick up some McDonald’s around 7 p.m. on the day of the shooting. Upon discovering that the fries were not the temperature she preferred, she went back to request fresher, warmer fries.
“The fries were cold. 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.,” Fulmore claimed. “So I taste the fries, and after I got to the third one, it was a cold fry still. So, I went back to take the food back.”
This was when things started to kick off. She then goes on to accuse the staff of mocking her, and laughing at her repeated attempts to get warm fries.
“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,” the woman continued. “I was like, ‘What’s funny? I paid for food, and I should get what I asked for.’ They laughed at me.”
Enter the victim of this story, the young man who would eventually be shot. Fulmore alleged that he mocked her and told her that she had some food in her teeth.
“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,'” she said. “So, I said, ‘You wanna take it out? You’re saying I got all this food in my teeth, you wanna take it out?'”
According to her report, it was at this point she requested to speak to the manager, but the employees continued to laugh at her. So she called her Morgan and told him what was happening.
“Everybody started laughing again. 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.'”
That was when Morgan informed her that he was on his way over to the store. She attempted to stop him, sort of, but was not successful. It appeared that she knew what her son was at the very least capable of doing, and tried to warn him away from it.
“I was like, ‘All right,'” Fulmore admitted. “Then I told him, ‘No, don’t come to McDonald’s because I don’t want you to get in trouble.'”
“He was like, ‘I’m coming in,'” the mother recalled. “So, he came in. He heard them saying stuff to me, so he was like, ‘You all gotta back off my mother.'”
“My son said, ‘Come outside’ to the boy in the back,’’ she explained, noting that the employee did not go outside at the time. Fulmore claims that at this point, she thinks her son is gone because she sent him away after the initial request to step out of the store.
“So I’m thinking my son was gone. I’m thinking it was over because my son left the store.” Fifteen minutes later, the male employee asked her where her son was at. She claims that she told the young man that he had left, but the employee went outside to look for him. This, she says, makes the shooting and his subsequent death the fault of the victim.
“The next thing you know, maybe like 10 minutes later, you hear a gunshot. So I ran to the door. I said, ‘Who’s shooting?’” Fulmore describes the moment she saw her son running away, and the male employee on the ground.

The employee was reportedly shot in the neck and rushed to Brookdale University Hospital, where he is in critical condition.
“I looked, and I seen a boy on the ground, and then I saw my son running the other way. I called 911, and then I sat there and waited.” She claims, however, that she doesn’t even know if her son was responsible for the shooting.
“The only thing I know is that my son was arguing with the boy and the boy did go out looking for my son,” she added, noting that the boy had a baggy blue shirt on. This, she says, may have been because he had a weapon of his own and was looking to fight with Morgan.
“There was no reason for him to go outside looking for somebody,” she maintained. “Whatever happened outside, you caused that to happen.”
When discussing the incident with her son and the police, she says Morgan had some rather chilling words.
“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.
