MEMPHIS, TN (abc24.com) - Memphis Police Director Toney Armstrong held a meeting with Memphis City Schools to address teen violence, such as the incident that resulted in 17-year old Terrence Wilkins being shot and killed after a basketball game at Central High School Friday night.
Armstrong says after the meeting, he left convinced "MCS went through extraordinary steps to make sure students were safe."
He says the seven officers MCS had at the game were more than enough. "Sometimes you have to tell yourselves the truth. Regardless of how many officers were at this game would this event have happened? There's no way to know that.''
While Armstrong said there was a breakdown in communication, that's something they will repair in the future.
