(New Haven, Conn./CBS Connecticut) – A recent spate of shootings in New Haven has the city’s police chief speaking out.
Chief Anthony Campbell says in two of those cases, minors were shot, one of whom died this month.
Campbell says while all crimes are taken seriously, it’s particularly troubling when a child falls victim to street violence.
The chief says the department will be deplolying “multiple additional resources” to those areas being affected.
He’s also imploring the community to work with police in trying to keep quell the violence and help arrest the perpetrators.
