BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -

Thursday marks day three after a shooting in Henry Beck Park in Biloxi left two teenagers injured. There have been no arrests made, and now detectives are asking for the community's help to give police any information that could help solve the case.

Meanwhile, Biloxi investigators are using skills they learned this week from the Mississippi Crime Stoppers Training Conference in Biloxi on this investigation.

Capt. Jim Adamo, with the Biloxi Police Department, said it takes three to tango when it comes to fighting crime in your neighborhood.

"It's really important that law enforcement, the community and the media get together and share this information, because it's our community. We have to do it together," Adamo said.

He says programs like Crime Stoppers are a wonderful tool for law enforcers to use and for citizens to anonymously report any criminal activity they may witness.

Henry Beck Park is where Biloxi citizens have worked hard to revitalize and reconnect their community. It's the same park that has Biloxi law enforces asking for your help with any information in regards to a recent shooting that left two teenagers injured.

Investigators say the shooting happened in front of a crowd of people, and every little tip could help crack this case.

"In an effort to fight crime like when we had the shooting the other night, we want people to come forward, and we want people to tell us, 'Listen, you need to look here or you need to look there,' and that's what we do. We've done that, and it's really paid big dividends for us," Adamo said.

Adamo said it's the people in the community that help them do their jobs.

"There's always someone who knows something. Somebody who's seen something and they are afraid to come forward for whatever reasons, but it is an anonymous reporting. They don't even ask for your name. We just want the information so we can follow it up and hopefully make our community safer," Adamo said.

Adamo said there's also a cash reward for information leading to a conviction in this case, so if you or anyone you know has information on Monday's shooting, you're urged to call the Mississippi Crime Stoppers hotline at 877-787-5898.
