Indy chief wants help in stopping murders

The Police Chief in Indianapolis says the public has to help if officers are to stop a small percentage of the population from committing violent crime. Chief Rick Hite says police are working non-stop to solve eight murders that took place across the city on Thursday. He says they appear to have a theme all too common. Hite says the individuals involved in the criminal activities have prior criminal histories. Marion County had 26 murders so far this year.
