Albany--  Albany Police are investigating the shooting of two teenagers in South Albany. They were walking home from school when shots were fired from a passing car.

Albany High students, 17-year-old Verlin Brown and 18-year-old Marcus Shannon were headed home about 4:30. Police say a group of teenage boys in a brown car shot at them near the intersection of Highland Avenue and South Cleveland Street.

One was shot twice in the back, the other once in the arm. Soon after, we saw Albany Police take two young men into custody on Stadium Drive near Albany High School. They also towed away a tan Chrysler New Yorker.

The victims' godmother says she doesn't know why anyone would want to hurt her godsons.

"I'm just thankful all together that they are o.k. and I pray that somebody gets serious and figure out all this madness," says Ann Thomas.

When asked if the shooting was gang-related APD Police Chief James Younger replied, "We're investigating the possibility."

Family members say the boys are recovering tonight and will be okay.
