The News of Cumberland County has a write-up of the recent spate of shootings in Millville.

An ice cream shop and an intersection that was already the scene of three shootings in two days were peppered with bullets over the weekend in two separate shooting incidents.

No one was injured, but police still asked for the public’s assistance in finding those responsible.
The worrisome thing here is the fact that one shooting happened in broad daylight, at a busy area, and nobody saw anything.
Detective Sgt. Harrold Duffield said police were dispatched to the 500 block of North 2nd Street for a report of gunshots at 1:45 p.m. Saturday. “Police for there and attempted speaking to people in the area, but they did not receive any pertinent information.”
Obviously when witnesses refuse to cooperate with law enforcement, their hands are tied. They need a few people to step forward, and to stop being cowards. It is a shame that these same people will whine about the crime, and complain about the shootings, but their mouths are zipped and they treat our cops as the enemy.
Duffield asked for the public’s assistance in stopping the shootings, and said the police department had noticed the amount of crimes taking place in the area.

“I’m just asking that anyone with information regarding these shootings or others please contact the police at (856) 825-7010.”
