INDIANAPOLIS - Public officials, faith leaders and area radio stations planned to unite Saturday against the recent spike of violence in Indianapolis.

Mayor Greg Ballard, Congressman Andre Carson, community leaders and public safety officials said the event was a call for peace to support the city's law enforcement officers. The Indianapolis Power and Light company building at Monument Circle displayed blue lights Saturday in solidarity.
The event followed an especially violent week in Indianapolis that claimed the life of Metro Police Officer Perry Renn .
All Indianapolis radio stations including Emmis, Entercom, Clear Channel, Cumulus and Radio One affiliates, WTTS and WEDJ were listed as the event's hosts.
The free event was scheduled to begin at 9 p.m. and the public is invited to attend.
