NEWBURGH, N.Y. (AP) — A Hudson Valley city trying to cut down on gun violence has installed a high-tech system to quickly detect the source of gunshots.

Newburgh this month went live with a ShotSpotter, a detection system that uses microphones to pinpoint the location of gunfire. Police in Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, Chicago and other cities have used the audio-detection system.

Newburgh, about 50 miles north of New York City, installed the system in a three-square-mile area of the city.
