RICHMOND, Calif. (KGO) -- Richmond police say they'll send officers to specific areas of the city so they can respond quickly to people illegally firing guns to celebrate the Fourth of July.
The city will be using the ShotSpotter audio system to pinpoint the location of any shooting.
The audio sensors are calibrated to recognize the difference between gunshots and fireworks.
Officers say they will arrest anyone caught discharging a firearm in public.
