Investigators say Albany arson gang involved

Arson Investigators think gang members torched a South Albany house late Thursday night.

Investigators think this home in the 1100 block of West Lincoln was burned in retaliation for a gang shooting an hour earlier just around the corner.

Police were questioning the homeowner about the shooting when witnesses say four young people threw a Molotov cocktail through the home's window.

Why is this gang doing this?  Homeowner Katrina Clayton said "I have no idea. They says they don't want us on this side of town. That they own this side of town."

Clayton denies that her family is involved in gangs.

Investigators say the argument is between members of the Crips and the Black Gangsta Disciples.
