Two shootings in Operation Impact Zones on Creston Avenue in one week

Local residents are being urged by police to take safety measures after two fatal shootings in Operation Zones on Creston Avenue.

A man died Saturday after being shot multiple times in front of 24-35 Creston Avenue. Last Wednesday another man was shot several blocks away near 25-46 Creston Avenue. Both of the victims died at the scene of the shootings.

The incidents took place in front of the newly designated Operation Impact Zones. Operation Impact is a program that floods high crime neighborhoods with officers. Despite the recent shootings, local residents say the area is still safer than it was years ago.
