Neighborhood wary of violence

October 20, 2005

Albany-- Two East Albany men are shot during incidents in the Cromartie Beach area Wednesday night and Thursday morning.

Neighbors say a fight Tuesday night between several teenage girls on Beachview Drive led to the shootings last night. About 9:45, four men in a small white car opened fire in the 1200 block of Cromartie Beach Road. Witnesses say at least 10 shots were fired.

Kenuawkee Covin was shot in the leg. He is stable at Phoebe Putney Hospital. About 12:45 Thursday morning, a shot was fired through the wall of Marcus Price's apartment on Beachview Drive. The bullet hit Price in the back, but just bounced off, leaving him uninjured.

People who live in the neighborhood say there will be more violence tonight. "Yea, It's some more going to happen. This ain't even it, it ain't through," said eyewitness Daniel Williford.

No one has been arrested in the two shootings. Several people who live in the area told us today they are scared there will be more violence.
