Princeton shooting shocks neighborhood residents

A South Elm Street resident described his shocked reaction to the April 2 shooting that rocked his neighborhood.

“I was upset,” said Aashon Morris. “This is the neighborhood in which we live. Even though this happened, it’s still the same peaceful neighborhood.”

Morris and his 17-year-old son were home on a quiet Monday afternoon in two different rooms playing video games.

“I heard an argument and there were different voices,” said Morris. “They got louder and louder and I heard someone yell ‘Back up! Back up!”
