WATERLOO (KWWL) -

Many people have had enough of the violence in Waterloo, and now the Waterloo Police Chief will hold a news conference to discuss the violence. That news conference will be streamed live on KWWL.com/live at 11 a.m.

In recent weeks, there have been several shots-fired cases, and multiple cases where bullets hit homes or cars. Police say many of those incidents are related to each other.

Waterloo Police Chief Dan Trelka believes the recent calls on Newton, Center and Broadway streets are not only related, but also retaliation.

One home on Newton Street has been hit by bullets twice in recent weeks. Chief Trelka says officers are making progress in their investigation--and are close to finding the people behind all the recent shootings.

We also expect the chief to talk about a case that really shook the community -- the shooting of 4-year-old Marshon Glover, Jr.

The four-year-old was sitting inside his house when he was hit by a bullet just a few weeks ago. Police say they're working to find the shooter but this is not an easy case to solve.

Investigators are still getting tips and checking evidence, but there are no solid witnesses who've stepped forward yet. That's a big part missing from the investigations. Police need the public's help.

We will have continuing coverage of what the chief says throughout the day.
