Mayor Pedro Segarra’s office said he’s attended numerous meetings with police Chief James Rovella. He’s also asked the state for help.
"The chief and I speak almost on a daily basis,” Segarra said. “We do know that working collaboratively with our state partners and others does give us the best opportunity to be more tactical."
Dawn Dion said there needs to be more parks and organized events in the city to keep children and teens out of trouble,
"They need something to do with themselves instead of being in the streets all the time and hanging out with these people who hang out in the streets. It's not good for them and not a way to live their life," Dion said.
In the meantime, police said they continue to look for suspects in Sunday’s shooting.
Anyone with information on it is asked to call the Hartford Police Department.
