From the Miami Herald:

The Miami Police Department reassigned eight police officers and a sergeant to patrol the troubled Liberty Square public housing project, marking the first time a team of cops is assigned specifically to one housing development, interim chief Manuel Orosa announced Wednesday.

There were 13 shootings in Liberty Square in the past two months, making Liberty Square the single most dangerous pocket of the city. In one incident, a 42-year-old man in a wheelchair was killed before dawn Sunday. Another incident left five people injured.
