BELOIT, Wis. -

A rash of gun crimes in Beloit is prompting a community group to hold a town hall meeting on the issue Friday night.

Community Action will host the meeting at the Eclipse Center at 6:30 p.m.

A release from the group states that it wants to develop strategies to break the cycle of violence.

Jeffrey Hardnett, 25, was shot multiple times on Hull Avenue early Thursday. Two men were killed in separate shootings on April 25.

Softball games between Beloit Memorial and Sun Prairie were called early Tuesday after gunfire was reported near Krueger Park.
