Rally held for Seton Hall shooting victim

EAST ORANGE - Students, community activists, and neighbors gathered to remember a Seton Hall student who was fatally shot at an off-campus party last Saturday.

Jessica Moore, 19, was shot to death, and four others were wounded at the party.

The accused gunman Nicholas Welch and his accomplice Marcus Bascus have since been arrested.

Many say they came for a peaceful rally, but it became so heated police were called and some protesters even sat in the streets to block traffic.

Moore's funeral is scheduled for Saturday in Virginia. Bus loads of Seton Hall students plan to travel to Virginia to attend.
