Albany searching for ways to combat increasing violence
July 09, 2018 01:27 PM
ALBANY - Thirteen people have been shot in Albany since the Fourth of July. One person was stabbed to death.
About 200 people, including Mayor Sheehan, held a rally at the Arbor Hill basketball courts Sunday night, hoping for a solution.
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.
