Albany --  Albany city commissioners say they're worried about kids in our schools.    Last Friday there was a gang scare at Lincoln Elementary Magnet School.  Rumors of a possible gang shootout put the school on high alert.      

Commissioner Dorothy Hubbard says she hopes the city police force and the school police force will work together to keep our kids safe. "I would like to see us work with the Dougherty County School Police Department.  We all need to be together on this.  It is about the safety of our children."

Albany Police Chief James Younger says they had some credible leads about the threat of gang violence and they took extreme caution to keep everyone safe.
