(Michigan City, IN) - A ban on alcohol is being called for to reduce violence at the lakefront in Michigan City. Councilman Paul Pryzbylinski says a lid can be placed on drinking by the park department right away without having to seek approval from the city council.
The proposed ban is being called for in response to a recent spree of acts like gunfire at or near Washington Park. One of the violent outbursts at the lakefront recently ended up in a fatal shooting.
Officials say police have responded to about 80 calls involving gunfire throughout the city so far this year.
