Tallahassee Police Chief Michael DeLeo’s leadership of the city’s police department drew criticism and praise from residents at an open forum Tuesday. DeLeo said he likes to hold forums to build relationships with community members.

An early-morning incident today was the fourth time in a month Tallahassee police officers have shot suspects they were pursuing.  Tonight, the community is invited to discuss gun violence with TPD at a town hall.

  

The meeting starts at 6 p.m. at New Birth Tabernacle, 1200 Harlem St.—that’s near the intersection of West Tennessee Street and Stadium Drive.

Pastor Rudy Ferguson says he’s hosting it because he wants to ensure the African-American community partners with police to work on solutions.
