For most people, New Year’s is a holiday to reminisce about the past year and spend time with your loved ones. The Morse family did not get that opportunity.
According to FOX 5 DC, Alex Morse, a longtime Capitals season-ticket holder, was an innocent bystander to an argument between two groups of people that escalated to violence in Northwest DC. When shots were fired, Morse was caught in the crossfire and rushed to hospital in a critical condition. DC police chief Peter Newsham informed FOX 5 DC that an investigation was still ongoing into the attack and that they were currently searching for a suspect in a red shirt.
