ALBANY,  GA (WALB) –Around 9 o'clock Monday night, a line of police cars and lights filled Dobbs Drive where a 19-year-old, Malcom Todd, was killed by a single bullet.

Albany police say Todd and 19-year-old Joe Robertson were inside a mobile home at 86 Dobbs Drive when someone pulled up in a small car, blew the horn, then fired a shot as the young men walked to the door.

Todd was hit once in the chest and pronounced dead on arrival at Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital. Robertson wasn't hurt.

A few hours later around midnight more shots rang out, this time at 1st and Davis. Bullet holes could be seen this morning on a blue Tahoe parked on the side of the street. A house was shot multiple times, too.

No one was hurt and there's no indication the two shootings are connected. Now city police are asking for the public's help solving their sixth homicide of the year. They're continuing to question neighbors and witnesses, but no one has been taken into custody for the death of Malcom Todd.

People who live in the area are convinced this was an act of a gang but police are not confirming that. People also say they are concerned with the problem of teenagers having guns on their streets illegally. Police haven't released any information on suspects or a possible motive.

If you have any helpful information, as always, call them or their crimestoppers tipline at 436-TIPS.
