Bridgeton residents try to quell violence

    In response to three shootings, Bridgeton Mayor Albert Kelly announced last week the city would hold a town hall meeting to discuss violence.

    City Council members, police officers, clergy members, residents and members of the prosecutor’s and sheriff’s officer turned out for last night’s meeting to consider anti-violence efforts.

     

    The News of Cumberland County reports coaches and anti-violence group leaders asked for more support in getting kids involved in the community and a better effort from adults to set examples and coach teams.

    Three shooting between the middle and end of last month left two men dead.
