ORLANDO, Fla. — A mass shooting in the Chicago suburbs has caused some to rethink Fourth of July plans for the evening.
The City of Orlando’s Fireworks at the Fountain event is underway. Police Chief Orlando Rolon said he understands those concerns, but said there is a way to try to do our part to keep everyone safe, especially in a big crowd like the one at tonight’s event.
Rolon said everyone needs to be mindful of their surroundings. Security will be in place Monday night.
But if you see something, say something.
“Even if it rises to the level where someone thinks, ‘Should I say something?’ immediately report it, call 911,” Rolon said. “That’s what we’re here for.”
Fireworks are set to start just after 9 p.m.
