TROY--It has been a summer of violence in Troy. So far, there have been 8 homicides, a 600% increase compared to last year; per capita that rate is higher than most major cities. In addition to the homicides, police are also investigating dozens of arsons and countless calls for shots-fired, particularly in North Troy and Lansingburgh.
Jennifer Lewke sat down for an interview with both the Mayor and Police Chief to discuss their plans to combat the violence.
