We go to bed at night, expecting the night to pass by without any incident, until we return to the world the next morning.
But, at around 1 a.m. on March 21, according to police, gunshots may have been fired on Mills Street.
Eyewitness accounts told police a light-colored sedan had been speeding down the road, and someone in the vehicle may have fired the gunshots, according to a press release issued by the Morristown Police Department on Wednesday afternoon. In that release, police confirm that evidence of a weapon being fired was recovered from the scene.
This is not the first incident involving major crime to happen in Morristown recently.
In June 2011, police reported that a man carrying a handgun carjacked two individuals near Phoenix Avenue and Washington Street, taking their automobile. Earlier this month, in a report first issued by the Daily Record, police say a drug deal gone bad resulted in one man being robbed of $1,200, a designer watch and being forced to eat cigarettes.
