ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - St. Paul police say more resources will be dedicating to combating gun violence after nine people were shot in the city during a four-day span, including two fatally.

Police spokesman Steve Linders says the department is increasing patrols in areas where shootings have happened more frequently. The St. Paul Pioneer Press (https://bit.ly/1YEKm9G ) reports Linders says the department is also creating a response team to more intensely investigate every report of gunfire, even if no one was injured.

Three shootings happened Monday, including one that resulted in a man’s death. The victim is identified as 31-year-old Charles Hudson of South St. Paul. Police say no one is in custody for that crime. Authorities have arrested two men in Sunday’s shooting death of 18-year-old Bobby Davion Collins of St. Paul at Indian Mounds Regional Park.
