ALBANY, GA (WALB) –The District Attorney confirms Police are investigating the gang-related shootings of at least two people recently.

About 11 Monday night a bullet shattered the window at Latrera William's home on North Davis Street and lodged in the wall.

Williams and her two daughters were asleep and were not injured.

A couple of blocks away, the window on this S-U-V was shattered by bullets.

D-A Greg Edwards is asking people to report gang activity to help prevent an all out gang war. "There are a number of shootings that involved again conflicts between gang members. The community should report anything they see, because we don't want anybody being wounded or killed, "said Edwards.

The D-A says Albany law enforcers are working to quell the rise in gang violence quickly.

If you have information about any gang crimes, Police want you to call CRIME STOPPERS at 436-TIPS.
