As a result of several recent drive-by shootings, Councilwoman Donna Purvis (D-5) will host a community meeting on Saturday, September 7th or the residents of the area. The most recent of these left dozens of bullets and injured one person.
“I want to make sure the people of South 38th Street stay aware of what is being done to investigate this recent string of shootings. It is a chance to ask questions and learn what the community can do to help Louisville Metro Police. We want everyone to be safe,” says the Councilwoman.
The community meeting will be at Portland Memorial Missionary Baptist Church located at 3800 West Market Street beginning at 1:00pm.
Joining Councilwoman Purvis will be Major Ryan Bates, Commander of the LMPD’s 2nd Division, and Pastor Stephen Smith of the Portland Memorial Missionary Baptist Church.
“I want to invite everyone to come and join us,” says Purvis.
