9 Shootings In 4 Days Prompts Escalated St. Paul Police Response
ST. PAUL (AP) - St. Paul police say more resources will be dedicating to combating gun violence after nine people were shot in the city during a four-day span, including two fatally.
Police spokesman Steve Linders says the department is increasing patrols in areas where shootings have happened more frequently. Linders says the department is also creating a response team to more intensely investigate every report of gunfire, even if no one was injured.
Three shootings happened Monday, including one that resulted in a man's death. Police say no one is in custody for that crime. Authorities have made an arrest in Sunday's shooting death at Indian Mounds Regional Park.
