Police had no new information about the suspect or the vehicle he took off in, but Mayor Gastas is giving the department all of the resources they need.

“We need to make sure we bring him forward so that people understand we’re serious about this, keeping our neighborhood safe is a very important issue,” Gatsas said.

Police and the Mayor are telling residents to continue with their normal routines; go for walks, let their kids play in the front yard. So far it seems this was a random attack, but police are keeping all options open as they investigate.
