The mayor of Detroit outlined new measures for policing block parties following multiple shootings over the holiday weekend.

On Monday, Mayor Mike Duggan (D-Mich.) said since July 4th police responded to shootings at six separate illegal block parties, three homicides, and 24 other shooting victims.

Authorities wanted to make it clear that they’re not going after those having the typical, wholesome family barbecue.

“These are intentional, pre-planned events looking to attract people from miles away, people who are coming here carrying illegal weapons planning to party into the wee hours of the evening,” said Mayor Duggan.
