South Bend Police Chief Scott Ruskowski has written an impassioned plea for those who are in-the-know about the recent shooting of some young South Bend residents.
As of early Friday, Oct. 15, five people were shot within the past week, including a 15-year-old boy, a 14-year-old girl, a 16 year-old girl and a 19-year-old woman.
In a post on Facebook, Ruszkowski wrote that nobody is saying anything, but people know.
Ruskowski is frustrated that, despite the vigils, meetings and increased police patrols, the violence continues and cooperation from the public in bringing the people responsible to justice is lacking.
He says there is seldom a violent crime that doesn’t have more than one person who knows what happened and why. And he wants people who something to say something.
