INDIANAPOLIS — Gun violence in Indianapolis is a problem plaguing the city’s youth.
One Indianapolis man knows all too well the impacts killings can have.
“I don’t think kids nowadays understand the results for their actions,” Allegiant Prep Academy music teacher George Haynes said.
George Haynes has been a fixture at Allegiant Prep Academy since the start of the year. He is working to inspire the next generation.
The soft-spoken Haynes will tell you that he felt like he had to come back home to make a difference in his community.
“I was in the film industry doing production in Atlanta, Georgia before I came here,” Haynes said.
The date was December 29, 2021.
“He was one of my close friends,” Haynes said.
37-year-old DeJuan Alexander was found shot and killed near 46th and Keystone Avenue on the Indy’s north side.
“I just felt like I needed some guidance when I was in school, so I just wanted to be the person that I needed to the youth,” Haynes told WRTV.
Haynes is working to teach and mentor students at Allegiant Prep Academy like Treasure Edwards.
“He told me that if I keep up signing when I grow up, I can be what I want to be,” Edwards said.
