"Police officers will be on hand to speak to locals about concerns they have.
"We will work relentlessly – day and night – to identify and pursue the culprit(s), bring them to justice, and take weapons off the streets to keep our communities safe.
"I would urge anyone with information, however small it may seem, to contact investigators to help them build a clearer understanding of what has unfolded and who is involved."
