“Neighbors- Commander Missouri briefed me during the night about more violence in 4D last night. Chief Lanier has made additional police resources available in 4D to address this spate of violence. I will be in continued discussion with them today to discuss strategies in 4D. Police will be canvassing for evidence and talking to anyone who might have information.”
