Providing legal alternatives for young black men who might otherwise turn to violent crime and drafting their parents to help with crime prevention are central to a plan to curb violence in Indianapolis announced by community leaders Wednesday.
A man who was shot and killed by police after allegedly wounding four SWAT officers watched them approach the suspected drug house on surveillance cameras, Indianapolis' public safety director said.
"We need to look at violence as a family matter," he said.
Public Safety Director Troy Riggs said city officials are working with state legislators to toughen up penalties for gun crime, but he said the most good in lowering violence would be done at the family level.
