In connection with the incident that took place on Monday in the city’s Brooklyn borough, 20-year-old Michael Morgan is accused of attempted murder and criminal possession of a firearm, according to a tweet from NYPD Commissioner Keechant Sewell. Two counts of criminal possession of a weapon are also brought against Camellia Dunlap, an 18-year-old who has been named in media sources as his girlfriend.

“I discussed my son with the police. Following his arrest, Morgan’s mother, Lisa Fulmore, told the New York Post that her son was simply saying that he had to do what he had to do and the “victim” had come after him and whatever had happened, had happened.

According to law enforcement officials, Morgan allegedly shot a 23-year-old worker outside a McDonald’s restaurant after his mother argued with a worker there about an order of lukewarm french fries.

The dispute spilled out from the fast food restaurant into the street, according to authorities.
