Albany police were preparing for what could be another violent night on Tuesday.

It all comes as nine people were arrested Monday night and police fired and tear gas into crowds after rioters aimed and launched fireworks at police.

Concrete barricades were put up around Albany Police Center Station.

Some businesses around Madison Avenue across the street from the police station are boarded up.

There are also emergency "no parking" signs up in the area, which run 24-hours a day until June 15.
