Albany--  A  neighborhood fracas resulted in gunfire, and left two people shot, one fatally Monday evening.

People who live in the 1300 block of Mulberry Avenue say several people were fighting in an empty alley sometime after six o'clock Monday night when the shooting happened. Albany Police tell us at least two people were shot. 

Both victims were taken to the hospital but one died from gunshot wounds. APD says that Demetrius Vicks, 21, was shot in the chest, and later died of the wound. His 26-year-old brother, Travis Vicks, was shot in the leg. His wound was not said to be life-threatening.
