MAYOR: Hopes To Announce "New Initiatives" To Fight Crime Next Week
Christenson released a statement Sunday night after a violent week in the city.
Note: The following was submitted by Mayor Gary Christenson:
Malden Police continue to move forward in their investigations of separate unrelated shootings over the weekend.
Police have secured an arrest warrant for a 20-year-old Medford man, Daniel Rossetti, on the charge of attempted murder. This warrant is the result of an ongoing investigation related to the Middlesex Avenue shooting that took place yesterday afternoon.
If anyone has information regarding the incidents listed above, please call 781-397-7181 or email Lt. Gatcomb at Mgatcomb@maldenpd.org.
In the meantime, Lt. Molis and I canvassed earlier this afternoon the area where the shooting took place early Saturday morning to let residents know that the Malden Police are continuing to work diligently to apprehend those responsible for these crimes.
This week I will be working closely with the Police Chief and his team along with members of the City Council to see what new initiatives can be put in place that will further address these acts of violence. My goal is to announce these ideas at the August 27th Public Safety Awareness meeting outdoors at Lincoln Commons on Cross Street from 6-8 pm.
My hope is also to have Middlesex District Attorney Gerry Leone at the meeting to update us on the status of the investigations.
Once again, I want to thank the Malden Police for giving it their all in working to solve these crimes.
