Pizza shop owner, clergy discuss ways to stop Albany violence

ALBANY – Violence in Albany continues to have some business owners concerned.

That includes Frank Scavio, the owner of Paesan’s Pizza. He met with faith leaders on Tuesday to discuss how to stop violence in the city.

Scavio told NewsChannel 13 last October he was considering closing his Albany location in Pine Hills due to recent shootings in front of it.

He has been in the location for 30 years.

The pastors and Scavio say they really care about this community, and they hope they can work together to make it safer.
