Mayor Purzycki To Hold Emergency Meeting With Police Chief Regarding Gun Violence

Wilmington – Following a day that saw the 49th person shot in Wilmington this year, Mayor Purzycki has announced that he will hold an impromptu meeting with Chief Cummings tomorrow morning.

“It is deeply disturbing each time there is news of another brutal act of violence in our city. While we are working with others on longer-term solutions, once again we must turn to our law enforcement community to protect us from those who seem so indifferent to society’s behavioral norms. I will meet with Chief Cummings in the morning to discuss what more can be done to identify and capture the worst violent offenders. The joint police task force continues to deploy in our City and continues to make progress in an atmosphere that reminds us each day there is just so much more to do.”, said Purzycki.
