February 19, 2021 Update from the Mayor

Shooting Incident Earlier This Week

While I cannot share details of the investigation as it is ongoing, several days ago there was a shooting along 95th Street.  No one was injured and it is believed to be a domestic related matter, not a random act of violence.  We would have immediately reported if there was any concern that the general public was at risk.  I understand that even though not random, it is scary and deeply concerning nonetheless.  I should note that crime related events in town have not been on the rise.
