HARRISON - New Jersey residents with Kenyan roots are still in shock over this weekend's mall massacre.

Terrorists overtook the Westgate mall in Nairobi on Saturday, leaving more than 60 civilians dead. Since then, people in the United States with ties to the region have been receiving emails, calls and text messages from loved ones describing the attack.

In Harrison, Deepesh Dhingra says one of his family friends was wounded and that another was killed.

He says he often went to the mall as a child and is praying that the nation comes together in the wake of the tragedy.
