“A woman was sitting on the curb outside the blue gas station, and he turned in there and shot her in the chest, and she fell over,” he told Channel 9. “I said, ‘Wow,’ and I automatically called 911.”
Darlene Rich said she went to the store to buy some cigarettes and happened to arrive before the police got there. She said she used to be an EMT and desperately tried to help Morgan, but nothing could do.
“She was unresponsive. I tried to cover the bullet hole with plastic so she could try and breath a little bit, but she wouldn’t respond to me,” Rich said.
Authorities have not released any other details on the homicide investigation, only saying it was not random.
