Norman Park - Everyone in the small town of Norman Park is on edge. Police and city leaders want everyone to know that they are doing everything they can to keep the community safe.
Norman Park has a population of less than 1000, with a very low occurrence of serious crime. Mayor Dan McGee says the attack that took place here Friday morning is the worst he's seen in 20 years. He says, "Nothing of this magnitude, and we don't want it to happen again."
To keep it from happening again, Police patrols have been stepped up in Norman Park and a neighborhood watch will soon be implemented. Police Chief Larry Jenkins says, "It's a big part of community oriented policing. If you get the community involved where everyone will share information with law enforcement, that will make our job a lot easier."
And will hopefully ease the minds of people here. Mayor McGee says, "The main thing we're concerned about is their safety and that's what we're working on right now, is their safety."
A curfew is currently in effect for all Norman Park residents: 11 PM during the week, midnight on weekends. If you're out past that time, you will be questioned. But if you have a question, or need from the police, just let them know. McGee says, "We will be here, if you need us, call. Is you see us on the road, stop us if you need us."
Ramone Perez, who was shot in the head, remains hospitalized. He is in Fair condition.
