SAN DIEGO (AP) - Few of the shootings recorded by a gunfire detection system in four San Diego neighborhoods were reported to police.
The Los Angeles Times reports that of the 61 shootings that occurred between Nov. 26 and March 27, just 26 percent were reported by residents. The ShotSpotter system was installed in the Valencia Park, Lincoln Park, Skyline and O'Farrell neighborhoods in late 2016.
Police Chief Shelley Zimmerman says the data show that residents are afraid to call police for fear of retaliation.
The sensor system tells officers the location and time of a shooting, how many rounds were fired and, in some cases, the number of shooters and whether they are on the move.
