INDIANAPOLIS -- The superintendent of Indianapolis Public Schools is calling for a new effort to cut school violence.
Dr. Lewis Ferebee says he's troubled and concerned by what he's seeing at IPS on a regular basis.
In a recent op-ed on the district's website , Ferebee said the community needs to come together to come up with a solution.
Dr. Ferebee says outside arguments -- turf wars -- are directly affecting what is happening in IPS hallways and classrooms.
"The interesting thing about the school is that it's typically where people know they can find the other person they are pursuing. Where they can confront that other person," said Ferebee.
Ferebee says part of the solution is getting illegal guns off the streets, out of the hands of kids.
The first step toward doing that, he says, is the creation of a task force or a summit.
The mayor's office, IUPUI's public safety office, and the Indiana Pacers have all expressed interest in being a part of it.
