Officers responded and found a deceased man in a vehicle and another man near that location suffering from a gunshot wound. police have released no information regarding suspects, motive, or arrests. 

Anti-violence activist Gabriel Makinano says the spike in violence is connected to young people being out of school with nothing to do in the wake of COVID-19.

“There has been a lot of different things going on with the youth because everything is shut down and you have these young kids that don’t have anything to do. You have all these different spikes of issues but no one is doing anything about getting something together for the youth,” Makinano said.
