You might remember that a little more than a month ago, our friend Larry was shot in a random act of violence. It was shocking and heartbreaking to everyone who knew him, to the residents of Mount Vernon where he lives, and to everyone in the city.
This morning, an arrest was made in the case, beginning the long process of bringing the shooter to trial. The police worked hard to solve the case, but it was routine community policing and patrolling, and an arrest on a much smaller charge, that lead to the break in the case.
Larry is much improved, although he has a long road ahead of him to full recovery. Please continue to send good thoughts and wishes for him.
