Indy pizza shop wants to offer free pizza for guns

A local pizza shop is planning a new promotion to help keep their northeast side neighborhood safe.

INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) - A local pizza shop is planning a new promotion to help keep their northeast side neighborhood safe.

The owner of D&C Pizza near 38th & Sherman wants to offer a free extra-large pizza to anyone who turns in a gun from off the streets.

He says there will be no questions asked, and the guns they collect will then be turned in to police.

"If a person can turn in a gun, that's one less gun we've got on the streets," said Donald Dancy of D&C Pizza. "I know it's wrong or whatever - whatever they might have done with the gun, a crime or whatever - but that's still one less gun that I could save a life....If everybody gets together, we can solve it, but it's going to take more than a lot of people besides me. If I even got it going, I still need people to help me regardless. Because it's bad out here."

The plan still needs approval from police before the restaurant will start offering the deal.
