According to a report from NBC 12, the U.S. Attorney spent the day in Petersburg on Wednesday visiting different high crime areas after the police chief called on federal law enforcement for more help in controlling crime.

This comes on the heels of a very violent stretch for Petersburg in the last couple of weeks, which has seen six shootings in as many days. Police have made just two arrests thus far related to those shootings.
