Recent homicides spur Bridgeton mayor into action

    Bridgeton residents are invited to a meeting Monday to discuss solutions to crime. Two shootings over an eight-day period led Mayor Albert Kelly to spring into action.

    He’s hoping the public will bring their own ideas to add to his: neighborhood watch programs and a hotline for people to call when they think something is about to happen.

    The Vineland Daily Journal reports the recent murders of 30- and 31-year-old men have the city looking for answers. An arrest has been made in only one of those crimes.

    The meeting is set for 7 p.m. at the Marino Center.
