Boston, Mass.- Edward F. Davis III, who will be sworn in today as Boston's police commissioner, vows to make gun violence his top priority while improving the department's community policing program.

Davis said the fatal shooting last week of a former gang leader who was deeply involved in preserving a four-month truce with a rival gang especially concerns him.
