Chief Harteau Releases Statement on Recent Violence

“I continue to be concerned about the recent violence we have seen in our city. We have witnessed too many senseless and tragic deaths. The common denominator in many of the homicides this year, including the 2 most recent homicides and this evening’s shooting in Minneapolis, is that people are using guns in the heat of the moment to settle their personal disputes, making it virtually impossible for police to predict or prevent these acts. I can assure you we have teams out looking for the perpetrators of this violence. I urge anyone with information on these homicides or shootings to step forward and help us make arrests to provide justice for the families of the victims.”
