Statement from Chief O’Toole on Recent Gun Violence

In the last 24 hours, there have been five shooting incidents, leaving one person dead and four others injured. We offer our deepest sympathy to the family of the young woman who died yesterday. Our hearts go out to these victims and their loved ones.

We are outraged by the gun violence, and neither our department nor our community will tolerate it. We have been working consistently with our federal, state, and county partners, and convened a meeting today to redouble our efforts.

Our department is working around the clock to investigate these incidents. We stand together with our community to bring those who have brought violence onto our streets to justice.
