In a statement, Staff Sgt. Martin Schiavetta said it’s been an extremely busy week for the police.

“Homicide investigations are complex and require resources from multiple different units,” said Schiavetta. “[Investigations] include patrol, general investigations, forensics, crime scenes, cybercrimes, and other specialty areas.”

Schivetta adds that on top of dealing with homicide investigations, officers have also been dealing with a number of violent incidents across the city.
