A Week Of Pandemic Violence
By Neil A. Carousso
NEW YORK (WCBS 880) — A surge in gun violence this week began with the killing of a 1 year old in Brooklyn and continued throughout the week as police officers, including NYPD Chief of Department Terrence A. Monahan, were injured in a Wednesday protest on the Brooklyn Bridge that was billed as a march against violence.

Carousso produced the Week In Sound as heard on WCBS Newsradio 880 for the week ending July 17, 2020 that included an increase of gun violence in New York City, spikes in COVID-19 cases nationwide, progress on a vaccine from Moderna, and debate over reopening schools safely.
