ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

A stop the violence prayer vigil just got underway about 5:30 Thursday afternoon, in memory of two slain Albany men.

Those two 20 year olds were gunned down in  a gang related drive by attack, .in front of a home on Willard Avenue in South Albany Sunday night.   The killer or killers are still on the loose.

Pastors from a couple of Albany churches hosted this vigil. They are begging the community to come together and help put an end to violence in Albany.

Around 9:45 20-year-olds William Davis, Junior and Desmond Williams were killed when about 50 shots were fired from a car. Each man was hit only once, but both shots were fatal.

Albany Police continue what they term an "aggressive investigation" into the two murders, but so far no arrests. 

APD said that some of the people involved in violent gang activity may even be related to each other.

A $1,500 reward is now being offered for information leading to the gunmen.   You can give information anonymously by calling CRIMESTOPPERS at 436-TIPS.
