Posted: Updated:

ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  Albany Police are looking for a suspect in the West Gordon Avenue area after at least one person was shot about 6:00 Monday afternoon.

An APD officer patrolling the area exchanged gun fire with two men who appeared to have held up the Family Dollar Store in 1000 block of West Gordon Avenue.

The officer wounded one of two suspects, and that man is in custody, and was being treated about a block down the street, in the 900 block of West Gordon.

The wounded man has been taken to a hospital, and the other man is also in the custody of the Albany Police Department.

The call came in as a hostage situation, and we are looking into that aspect of the story.
