South Bend residents react to Sunday shootings

NOW: South Bend residents react to Sunday shootings

NEXT:

SOUTH BEND, Ind.--- Sunday, four people were shot in three separate shootings. Officials say the shootings are unrelated, but the suspects in each case are still at large.

At 2:43 a.m. Sunday morning, two IUSB baseball players were shot at a party. An hour later, a woman walked into the hospital with her 11 month old grandson who had been shot in the shoulder.

That night, a man was shot on Kayley Street after he was robbed by a man staging as a woman he’d met online.

“I was pretty surprised. I heard about them over the weekend,” said Phillip Rozinski. “I don’t know what’s going on with all the shootings.”

Mayor Pete Buttigieg also weighed in on the shootings saying:

 “One incident of gun violence is one too many. We are working diligently to ensure levels of gun violence this year continue to go down from previous levels. In order to break the cycle of violence, we need those who know something to say something. Public safety is a community-wide effort.”

Officials say the victims are expected to recover. South Bend Police ask that anyone with any information on these cases reach out to them.

When Petey has a break from the news shows he'll see if those groups will play nice together. it's a shame da shootin gallery is taking on babies now! Maybe Petey can use some of that $368 million budget for cop OT

Ha try getting a South Bend cop to work any real overtime!
Unless it involves directing traffic they want nothing to do with it..
Perhaps if they did something called patrolling instead of hiding in the back of parking lots or keeping the gas stations in business things like this could be avoided.

Wow K! I thought maybe you knew what you were talking about! So I went to the gateway.ifionline.org website. I took only the first 10 patrol 1st class officer wage earners. Just the first 2 pages of all South Bend City employees. Guess what? You don't know squat! The average wage earned by a 1st class patrol officer in 2018 was $35 less than $74,000. That includes lots of OT! It always pays to know your facts!
