Mayor Comments on Celebratory Gunfire on New Year's Eve
New Year's Eve in parts of Montgomery sounded more like a war zone than residential neighborhoods.
That's because of an excessive amount of celebratory gunfire.
Montgomery Mayor Todd Strange told city council members Tuesday night that law enforcement officers were “swamped” and that it’s the most celebratory gunfire the city has heard in recent years.
“We will be working on some manner to help us do a better job next year. We do not know what the answer is but we were just lucky this year that we did not have any incidence,” said Mayor Strange.
There were no injuries but there were a few reports of property damage.
