Albany - - Some Albany youth pledge to stay away from guns. 

Students at Albany Middle School joined 5 million other students across the country to stay away from gun violence. Today is the 11th Annual National Day of Concern about Young People and Gun Violence.

The event is sponsored by the U.S. Attorney's Office and Dougherty County Schools. Organizers say the pledge is a good way for young people to think about their present and future choices. 

"We think that we need a response to violent crimes that are taking over here in our community and thought the state our office has a project safe neighborhood initiative that addresses gun crime throughout the United States," says U.S. Assistant Attorney Leah McEwen.

Dougherty County Sheriff Jamil Saba, Juvenile Court Judge Herbie Solomon, District Attorney Ken Hodges and Campus Police Officer Terron Hayes joined the students as they pledged against gun violence.
