Rev. Charles Harrison
was downtown patrolling the area where gunfire broke out that Saturday night.
He's member of Ten Point Coalition which tries to prevent youth violence.
told me that as a task force member, he
thinks it might be best to move the venue for next year, perhaps have earlier hours and have metal detectors.
But ultimately, he
says the city's gang problem must be addressed.
"Obviously, we have to make Indiana Black Expo safe," Harrison
"You know, it has to be a safe event, so we have to address really the large number of kids and gangs that are coming downtown.
The kids are coming downtown without any parental supervision.
That has to be addressed.
We have to address it as a community and the other issue we have to address is the large number of gangs and young men and women who are coming to these events that are carrying guns."
says the group has already met once and they meet again August 9th.
