Crimefighters: Who killed Quenzell Morris?

A grieving mother is making a public plea for justice.

Sheila Morris is still having a hard time talking about her son, Quenzell, who she affectionately calls Quincy.

"Quincy, he was a real good person, he was humble, you know. He was a good guy," Sheila said.

Her 31-year-old son's life ended in the evening hours on Tuesday April 2nd as he sat on an outside step with a friend at the intersection of 26th and Cramer Streets in Camden.

"That's when the guys came around the corner," Sheila said, saying one of them opened fire, hitting her son multiple times.

Sheila said the suspects were wearing masks but, at one point, Quenzell was able to lift up the shooter's mask.

She said Quenzell was able to say the shooter's nickname at the hospital before he died.

But, that name has offered few leads.

Compounding the tragedy, Sheila said her other son, Andre, committed suicide just over a month after Quenzell died.

"Andre covered everything up, he acted like he was doing okay," Sheila said. "It's hard, it's hard."

The friend who was with Quenzell that night is gone.

"I don't know where he went. He had his phone number changed and everything, he moved," said Sheila.

The Citizens Crime Commission is administering a $1,000 reward that leads to the arrest and conviction of the person responsible.

All you have to do is call 215-546-TIPS.
