Albany's Police Chief said that his officers have received more threats following shots being fired at one of his cops. 

Chief John Proctor said both rifles and pistols were used to shoot at APD Officer Dillard Glover early Tuesday morning. They missed Officer Glover, but his car was hit by bullets.

Six suspected gang members have been arrested so far for the shooting, and one more, Rolando Frazier, is still on the run.

Proctor said they have received more threats in a gang pushback.

"There have been some calls that they were going to hurt police officers. Specifically some of our gang task force members. But that is not going to deter us. I have shared the information with all law enforcement. Officers are on alert," the chief said.

Chief Proctor said Rolando Frazier might be using the gang network to hide, and that federal marshals are helping search for him in Tallahassee, Panama City, and Thomasville.
