The police union sent a statement saying they are also fed up with the violence and will do its best to not let Albany become a war zone. The union goes on to point fingers at the mayor, saying the department has become an "understaffed mess."

Pastor Charlie Muller -- who runs an anti-gun violence program out of Albany, plans to step up his efforts as well.
