Albany -- A mysterious gunman opened fire outside a popular Albany convenience store Saturday morning. The shooting happened at June Bug's Plaza before ten.

Witnesses say a red car pulled up, a man got out and started shooting. The bullets shot out a store window but no one was injured. Albany Police would not confirm all the witnesses' details and say no one has been arrested.

"There were about five shots and the gun stuck out so I think it was like a rifle,"says witness Patrica Lae. "Fire and smoke was like coming out of the gun and they just speed off,"she says.

Witnesses also say after leaving the store, the gunman shot at two others women as he drove down Ebony Lane. But, APD would not confirmed that.
