String of shootings keeps Claremont community on edgePosted: Updated:
Residents of Claremont are growing concerned after a surge of violence in the area.
Two triple shootings occurred in the same area in less than a week. A four-year-old girl was wounded during one of the shootings.
Those who live in the area say the situation is not getting any better.
"It's getting worse and worse," said Vera Adjin. "I thought it was getting better but now during the summer, things are getting worse."
Many other people in the area say the violence is so bad, they are scared to talk about it.
Officials say they plan to do their part to make sure things improve. They say it is important for them to stay vocal and visible in the community.
The NYPD told News 12 that they will be stepping up patrols in the area.
