Albany -- Albany Police are still looking for a teenager in connection with a shooting of a nine year-old boy over the weekend.

That little boy remains hospitalized in Augusta where he will undergo facial reconstructive surgery.

Nine-year-old Zacobe Ford was shot in the face Saturday afternoon at 203 North Central.

Two adults called police when they saw a 15 and 16-year-old with guns in the 1300 block of Mulberry.

Police say to avoid getting caught with the guns,  the teens handed them off to nine-year-old Zacobe and his 12-year-old cousin.

Police say they were playing with the guns when the 12-year-old accidentally shot his cousin. Officers found three hand guns at the scene.

"The nine millimeter was not on file. Don't know where it came from, it had no serial numbers to locate where it came from. The 32-caliber hand gun had the numbers sawed off. So they are not able to locate where it came from, but the 32-caliber revolver was stolen," said Phyllis Banks-Whitley of the Albany Police Department. 

The 12-year-old is now in the R.Y.D.C. charged with reckless conduct and possession of a gun by a person under the age of 18.

The 15-year-old teen is also being held there on simple assault and various gun charges.

If you have any information on the 16-year-old, call Crimestoppers at 229-436-TIPS.
