Corey Fuller, former FSU and NFL star, says he wants community members and leaders to join him in a fight against senseless violence. This comes after the April 23rd shooting of Reshard Morrell, 15, at a party held at the Elks Lodge in Tallahassee.
Fuller is now the head football coach at East Gadsden high school and says it saddens him to think of young lives cut short.
Fuller says Morrell's killing hit too close to home, bringing back memories of his 18-year-old brother who was gunned down in similar fashion back in 1992.
"There's nothing to be ashamed about if you have any information that leads to someone being arrested for a crime they committed with a heinous act to hurt someone with no justified reason. If you tell, you are not a snitch. What you're doing is trying to protect and live in a safe environment," said Fuller.
Fuller says he has placed calls to several leaders in Leon County and welcomes anyone who wants to join him in the crusade against violence.
