A proclamation will be signed in Bethel today declaring Friday as Gun Violence Awareness Day in the town. It's being done in honor of a Bethel woman killed last year in Bridgeport, and other victims. First Selectman Matt Knickerbocker will sign the proclamation at 2:15pm on the steps of the municipal center to remember 25-year old Emily Todd. The Bethel native was shot to death in Bridgeport in December. More than a dozen other Connecticut municipalities are issuing formal proclamations for National Gun Violence Awareness Day, which is held on the first Friday in June. A vigil is being held in New Milford, as part of the campaign.
