Description
Segment Description
"Columbus' homicide rate in the early months of 1991 had tripled despite a high profile effort by police to curb illegal drug trafficking and action by Columbus City Council to ban sale of semi-automatic weapons. By June, Columbus police had reported fatal drive-by shootings and people killed by bullets fired from outside their homes. Reporter Gwen Walters developed sources within communities where violence was a common occurrence and produced two stories on the easy availability of guns despite legal and police actions to curb the violence. Her reports provided listeners with keen insights on street crime and included a recorded gun transaction. Walters added views from academics and public officials to give a complete aural-stration of the new level of violence in Columbus."--1991 Peabody Awards entry form.
