Del. Mayor Mulls Police Shakeup Amid Violence

Posted: Updated:

WILMINGTON, Del. (AP)- Wilmington Mayor Dennis Williams says he's considering shaking up the police department's command staff following continued violence.

Williams, a former city police detective, said in a Tuesday appearance on WDEL-AM that he takes ultimate responsibility but that he'll "be looking for new leadership" if crime doesn't start going down.

He spoke hours after two women who were sitting on a porch were injured by gunshots after being caught in a crossfire between two men.

Williams told the radio station that he met with police leaders on Monday and "told them this just can't go on any longer."

Police Chief Christine Dunning said that she met with the mayor but she declined to discuss their conversation or say whether she thought her job was in jeopardy.
