A Bridgeport woman whose son was paralyzed after being shot in the head says her life is forever changed since the tragedy.
Claudette Morrison fought back tears while talking about the attack on her son, Tommy Morrison, to News 12's Frank Recchia. The shooting happened at a nightclub on New Year's Day.
The grief-stricken mother says she came to the United States from Jamaica in search of a better life. Instead, she says her life was destroyed by this violent crime.
"Right now, I'm just crying every time, not eating, not sleeping. When I think about Tommy, I'm hurt," she says.
Claudette Morrison says her son supported her, and even though she does work, she has not been able to keep up her rent payments after the shooting and is now facing eviction.
Tommy Morrison has now been moved to a long-term rehab hospital, but when he is eventually released, his mom is not sure where he will come home to.
Claudette Morrison is asking for the public's help identifying the shooter and getting justice for her son.
But even if the suspect is arrested, Claudette Morrison says life will never be the same for her family, considering the condition her son is now in.
A GoFundMe page has been set up for Tommy Morrison.
