LONGWOOD - Residents in Longwood held a rally this evening after a young woman was fatally shot there earlier this week. Family and friends of Aisha Morales honored her memory with a "No More Guns" rally after she was gunned down this Tuesday. Police say Morales, 21, was shot in the head near her home while walking with her pregnant sister. Her mother says she hopes her death will not be in vain, and that people will think twice before using weapons. "If you would see my family together grieving, let it be an example for everybody to stop the violence," Natalie Ortiz said. Police have identified Catherine Morales, 26, as a suspect. Anyone with information is urged to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
