Albany -- Four people have been charged with aggravated assault for shooting two Albany teens.   

Seventeen-year-old Aveshia Quentez Walker, of Albany, 18-year-old Odell Alfonzo Alexander, of Albany, 17-year-old Jerome Lamar Jackson, of Leesburg, and a juvenile have each been charged with two counts of aggravated assault.   

Seventeen-year-old Verlin Brown and 18-year-old Mark Shannon were headed home from Albany High yesterday about 4:30.

Police say shots were fired from a passing car 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 near Albany High School. They also towed away a tan Chrysler New Yorker.  

"We're not saying it's gang related, but we are interviewing and getting statements from the individuals involved to determine what actually caused and we haven't come to that conclusion at this time," said APD Lt. James Williams. 

The suspects were denied bond during an arraignment this morning and are being held in the Dougherty County jail.  

Verlin Brown is in good condition at Phoebe, and Marcus Shannon was released yesterday.
