“With the events occurring in our city over the last week, I feel compelled to speak out against the senseless violence. The Gadsden Police Department has been working virtually around the clock to identify those responsible for committing these crimes. I commend our officers for their quick response and outstanding work identifying and arresting the suspects in these cases.
I feel confident that these are isolated incidents that do not represent who we are as a community. We will do whatever is necessary to keep the citizens of Gadsden safe.”
- Mayor Sherman Guyton
