GARY, Ind. (AP) _ A spokeswoman for Gov. Mike Pence says his office is reviewing the mayor of Gary's second appeal for Indiana State Police help patrolling the streets of the gritty northwestern Indiana city.
Gary Mayor Karen Freeman-Wilson this week provided details of a long-term plan to address violence in the city that Pence had asked for before considering her request. The Post-Tribune reported Thursday many facets of the plan already were in place when Freeman-Wilson, a former Indiana attorney general, initially asked Pence on July 11 to send in state police for three months.
Freeman-Wilson told Pence the city's 31 homicides so far this year is an increase of more than 50 percent over the same period in 2012.
