BROCKTON, MASS. (WHDH) - Brockton police set up a surveillance tower Thursday on a street corner that has seen two violent attacks in the past week.
The corner of Pleasant Street and Warren Avenue was fitted with video cameras that will allow officers to monitor the area from their headquarters.
On Saturday, 26-year-old Bethgy Cator was fatally shot and another man was wounded near the Brockton Mini Mart parking lot on Pleasant Street. Officers arrested Renardo Williams, 24, of Brockton, and Chanel Martins, 29, of Taunton, in connection with the shooting.
Three days later, 28-year-old Jean Dazile attacked a 54-year-old man with a baseball bat near the same spot as the shooting, police said.
The tower is being implemented as part of the police’s crime-fighting efforts.
