District Attorney Statement on Incident in Chester City on Sunday Night, May 28, 2023
On Sunday evening a group of teens gathered in the City of Chester to celebrate the holiday weekend and the end of the school year. Unfortunately, the presence of guns in the crowd turned this gathering into a chaotic and dangerous event. At this point, one juvenile is in critical condition, and five more have non-life threatening injuries. We know at least three guns were fired and over 50 shell casings have been recovered. This incident is particularly disturbing because of the great progress the City of Chester has made in recent years in reducing gun violence through a law enforcement-community partnership initiated by Mayor Kirkland and me in October 2020.
