Concerned Residents in Ocala After Two Murders
Concern is growing in one North Central Florida city after two unrelated murders in the span of just one week. Within just one month, Ocala has almost tied the number of murders the city experienced all of last year which was three. The first happened last Thursday in a parking lot outside a bar and the other was Tuesday outside a bowling alley. Both suspects arrested in each case are teenagers leading some residents to question what is going on.
"Obviously, we have young kids out there murdering people you know there is something wrong with that picture. I think we need to back to the basics," said Ocala resident Nina McNeal.
Ocala Police Spokesperson said his department will review crime patterns and take whatever proactive measures they can to combat violent crime. To see more on this report, watch the video to your right.
