Commissioner Edmonson’s statement on last night’s shootings

MIAMI – “In a matter of two hours last night, two teens were shot, making the total 8 in a week in Miami-Dade County,” Commissioner Audrey M. Edmonson said.  “The police were able to quickly act last night, and today a suspect is in custody. Why young men choose to settle scores with guns is beyond reason.  This killing, of and by young men in our neighborhoods, must stop. There are anonymous ways to report crime, including Crime Stoppers. I continue to urge our community to ‘say something if you see something.’ Only by working together – police, community and elected officials – can we make a dent in this horrible crisis.”
