Note: The following was submitted by Mayor Gary Christenson.
I am pleased to announce the arrest of Daniel Rossetti of Medford on a warrant charging him with one count of attempted murder in connection with the shooting incident that took place this past Saturday afternoon on Middlesex Street.
Rossetti was arrested in Chelsea earlier this morning after a long manhunt.
I would like to thank Lt. Marc Gatcomb and the entire Malden Police Department for spearheading this investigation and for keeping the community informed throughout this ordeal.
I also want to thank the State Police, Middlesex Sheriff’s Office, the Middlesex District Attorney’s office and the FBI’s Violent Crime Task Force for their assistance with this arrest. This was truly a team effort.
I am continuing to work with the Police Chief and his team on initiatives to further address acts of violence in the City. I hope to announce these ideas at the August 27th Public Safety Awareness meeting outdoors at Lincoln Commons on Cross Street from 6-8 pm. I am working to have a representative of the Middlesex District Attorney’s office in attendance.
In the case of inclement weather, the meeting will be held in the Suffolk Manor Community Room, 314 Bryant Street.
