Following a shooting Wednesday night, Albany Police Chief Eric Hawkins will hold a community forum tonight.

A 16-year-old boy is recovering after he was shot in the stomach around 6 p.m. Wednesday on Tyler Trice Terrace. An investigation is under way. Police also continue investigating the Monday night shooting of a 26-year old man on Orange Street. Police are asking the community to submit tips anonymously to Capital Region Crime Stoppers.

The ongoing conversation about gun violence that gained momentum after a 3-year-old child was shot in the arm while sleeping in a daycare center last month continues at a public forum from 6 to 8 p.m. at Morning Star Missionary Baptist Church on Quail Street.
