Quotes

"We don't know. The killer could still be out here; Our community isn't safe. We have children running around playing. I'm a mother of six children, so I can imagine how the mother is feeling. It's horrible" organizer Aniagreia Scott said
"I think hearing the chief address a lot of the community's concerns was very helpful. Not only in terms of sharing information, but in terms of letting us know what we can dodo in response to what has happened here in Gulfport recently" said Shurley
Chief Davis agreed, "There is no way one agency can respond to an event like that and get it resolved the way it was resolved today. It takes all of us working together. So my hats off to you; thank you so much."
"Will we go over? My guess is we will. No doubt about it, we will. And we don't need to tell Biloxi anything different."
