INDIANAPOLIS -- Members of several area churches marched from their place of worship to IPS School 43 in the Butler-Tarkington neighborhood Sunday.

They say they prayed for the school because they want children there to have a safe place to learn.

Over the past few years, the neighborhood has had to deal with a lot of crime.
