Chief Prince listed all of the shootings that have occurred in Portsmouth since June 1 and noted that so far investigators believe two of the shootings are gang-related.

He emphasized that the city has not seen an uptick in gang gun violence.

“Don’t let the posts on social media go too far in your head, think for yourself, ask why,” said Prince. “Social media is trying to make it, a gang war.”

He said it’s time for citizens to speak up about incidents to give the department leads.

“When you’re angry enough to take action, we’re here for you,” he said. “This is my city. I will not bow down; I will not stop.”

The 12 shootings the chief mentioned during the press conference are listed below:

10 On Your Side is working to get more information about some of the suspects Portsmouth PD has issued warrants for, as well as one of the shooting incidents on June 4. No details about the shooting on June 4 (Dartmouth Street) were sent out to 10 On Your Side until June 7.
