Black on Black Crime Task Force Meeting
There may be a recent increase in gun crimes around North Central Florida, but police say there's also an increase in awareness. The Black on Black Crime Task Force met to get an update from the State Attorney's Firearm Enforcement Unit.
It's a unit comprised of 5 people plus State Attorney Bill Cervone, and has prosecuted numerous people some who say if they could shoot someone again they'd do it. The purpose of the meeting was to inform the public about who they prosecuted and make sure they stay behind bars.
Residents feel the state attorney's office is doing right by specifically getting criminals who use guns off the streets.
"These people needs to be taken down and put out of society, cause evidently they can't function and know what they're supposed to be doing," Janice Henry, East Gainesville Resident said.
Residents asked questions about the recent shootings in Village Green and In Millrun. They were told the suspect involved in the Village Green Shooting has been caught, but they say the Millrun Shooting is still under investigation.
