During the news conference, Mina identified the suspect in the morning’s shooting and the two late afternoon shootings as Keith Melvin Moses, 19.

Mina said Moses has a lengthy criminal record, but those law enforcement encounters happened before he turned 18 so they are not public record.

The leaders said the community needs to work together to address gun violence, saying it is more than just a police issue.
