Mitch Morris wants for Avondale what any person wants for their neighborhood: a place parents can send their kids to school or to the corner store without having to worry they'll be hit by a stray bullet. Gunfire's been a regular presence for a long, long time -- so long, in fact, that neither Morris nor Cincinnati Police Lt. Col. Paul Neudigate could recall any long stretch without a shooting victim there. At least, not until now. During a recent 25-day period, nobody was shot in Avondale. Both men credit ShotSpotter, a technology that pinpoints gunfire using sound waves.
