Former state representative will lead Philadelphia Gun Violence Task Force

    District Attorney Seth Williams announced late yesterday the new leader of Philadelphia’s Gun Violence Task Force. Former Pa. Rep. Bryan Lentz has taken on the role.

    Lentz, who represented Delaware County from 2006 until last year, formerly served as an assistant district attorney for the commonwealth, specializing in gang and violent crime prosecution.


    Philadelphia’s Gun Violence Task Force receives state funding to “attack the proliferation of illegal guns on city streets.”
