LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - A recent increase in crime in Lafayette City-Parish Council District 4 has prompted Councilman Kenneth Boudreaux (BOO’-droh) to plan a gun buy-back program.

On Thursday, Boudreaux also challenged parents, pastors and residents to help police battle crime in the district.

The Advertiser reports (https://bit.ly/1nOV2yR ) Boudreaux set a goal of raising $5,000 so he can hand out $50 for every gun surrendered at a buy-back program.

Boudreaux hopes to kick it off Saturday afternoon at The New Church, 2700 Louisiana Ave. A time has not been set.
