JAMESTOWN-A Crime Initiative program that lent a lot of resources to quality of life issues in and around the Prendergast Ave. corridor before moving elsewhere is headed back to the area following a shooting last week according to Jamestown Police Chief Harry Snellings.
The city’s top-cop made the announcement at a Neighborhood Safety Night at Christ First United Methodist Church.
Last week an 18 year-old man opened fire on the corner of 8th and Prendergast Ave. in broad daylight. Fortunately, nobody was hurt.
The suspect, identified as 18 year-old Eduardo Rivera, was taken into custody following a brief foot chase.
