Sam Lee Morris was still alive when police found him. The disabled 61-year-old was laying unconscious in the road at the intersection of Sunnyvale and Cummings Street in Southeast Oak Cliff just before 10 p.m. Saturday night, having apparently been hit by a car.
That's what officers suspected, at least, but the vehicle that had hit him was long gone, and no other witnesses came forward that night. They put Morris in an ambulance bound for Baylor, where he died.
Since then, homicide detectives have pieced together a better picture of what happened. Police say that Roberts was on the sidewalk, just a few dozen steps from his Cummings Street home, when a group of teenagers attacked him. During the struggle, they pushed him into the road, right into the path of a white vehicle of unknown make and model.
A neighbor told Fox 4 that the neighborhood is plagued by teens who roam the streets, harassing residents. "Every night you see teenagers like five or six yelling, music banging," Johnathan Neely said. "Why you not at home? Don't you got school tomorrow? I know school is out but summer jobs? Something to occupy your time but they be in the streets."
Sam's brother, Robert Morris, suspects his brother was returning home from a convenience store on Saturday night and probably looked like an easy mark because of his limp. When they tried to rob him, he said, his brother resisted.
"When that happened I'm sure he was trying to get away from him but he couldn't," Morris told Fox 4.
Detectives are searching for leads. The case is being investigated as a murder.
Amish or Mennonite yutes again?
Where is Diane Ragsdale, JW Price, and the other Dallas race baiters. I am sure this is whitey’s fault somehow.
The herd needs to be culled.
I’m just going to free style here and guess the Amish. :-)
Teens? Another lamestream media euphemism for well...you know. I'm only surprised they didn't use the term "child" a la the sainted Trayvon Martin aka Obama's lookalike son.
another term for teens who roam the streets looking for trouble should be moving targets
I assume of course the victim was black as well, nobody cares about black-on-black crime.
A Clockwork Orange.
Now it is not safe for a disabled person to be on the street? That is just great (sarcasm off)...
Dallas is Chitcago South.
You mean South Dallas is Chicago South.
“Every night you see teenagers like five or six yelling, music banging,”
Whatever happened to Clinton’s midnight basketball millions?
“Just singing in the rain.....”
"Why you not at home?"
Somehow I don't get the feeling they're listening to the Ink Spots, or The Platters.
The scary part is that these Amish kids can get on DART and come to N. Dallas.
If police commit more officers to the high crime area and profile "teens" they are accused of racism. If police treat the high crime area like any other part of the city and blac-on-black crime skyrockets as a result the police are accused of racism. The police cannot win when it comes to policing these areas.
