BRIGHTON BEACH - Brighton Beach representatives from the 60th Precinct met with the Brighton Beach Neighborhood Association and residents to discuss the need for extra police coverage on the boardwalk this summer.

The meeting comes after a deadly shooting on the boardwalk that occurred earlier this month. Police officials insist that despite the earlier incident, overall crime in the area is down by 5 percent.

The shooting occurred in broad daylight, leaving five people shot and a 16-year-old girl dead. One suspect was arrested in connection with the shooting, but police say they are still working to make an additional arrest.
