RIVERSIDE — A recent increase in gun violence within this Burlington County township has prompted an investigation by several law enforcement agencies.
The move stems from recent shootings on Cleveland Avenue and Taylor Street. The initiative has resulted in search warrants being executed in Riverside, Camden and Trenton, during which two guns were seized and multiple individuals were identified as suspects.
"We will not permit the neighborhoods of Burlington County to be treated as shooting galleries and war zones," said County Prosecutor LaChia Bradshaw. "We are committed to apprehending armed, violent offenders who terrorize our towns through their disregard for the safety of innocent residents."
As part of the investigation, additional surveillance cameras and license plate readers are being deployed in the township, officials said.
Led by the county prosecutor's office and Riverside police, the investigation is being assisted by police in Delanco and Delran, as well as New Jersey State Police and the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

What would happen to NJ if we were attacked by nuclear weapons?
We used NUKEMAP by Alex Wellerstein
to see what would happen if a nuclear warhead hit New York, Philadelphia, Washington or New Jersey.
The models show what would happen in aerial detonation, meaning the bomb would be set off in the sky, causing considerable damage to structures and people below; or what would happen in a ground detonation, which would have the alarming result of nuclear fallout. The models do not take into account the number of casualties that would result from fallout.
