There was an increased police presence at the park Thursday night.
“Police and the Motorcycle patrols had already been stepped up as I was informed there were some issues in the neighborhood last week and despite the increase we still had this tragic event,” Brockton city councilor Thomas Monahan said in a statement on Facebook.
“We brought back the park last year and had no problems and we are going to keep it safe despite (Wednesday’s) events.”
