The Full Story: As Gun Violence Increases, Fair Haven Neighbors Take Action
The murder rate around the nation spiked in 2020. New FBI data shows there were nearly 5,000 more homicides than the year before.
Connecticut and Long Island both saw the number of shootings grow over the last year in our region. This week on The Full Story, we examine the local crime rate. And then, we take a closer look at one neighborhood in Fair Haven, Connecticut, where the residents are interrupting violence by taking to the streets.
