Young man shot to death in South Albany

February 14, 2008

Albany -- Dozens gathered along the 700 block of South Magnolia Street where deadly shots rang out Thursday afternoon.

"Around 3 o'clock this afternoon officers were called to the 700 block of Magnolia in reference to a shooting. When they arrived they found a black man in his mid-twenties inside a car," said APD Media Manager Phyllis Banks-Whitley.

Police discovered a burgundy Lincoln Town Car in an alley connected to South Magnolia Street. Inside they found the body of 24-year-old Cleveland Carter of Albany, the victim of a gunshot wound.

With at least three shell casings in plain sight, APD Crime Scene Units and the GBI began interviewing eyewitnesses to piece together how this deadly shooting unfolded near a busy intersection in the middle of the day.

"The suspect is a black male, 5 feet 6 inches tall, weighing 180 pounds, with a medium complexion with dreads," said Banks-Whitley.

With no motive behind the shooting and a killer on the loose, police are asking for anyone with information to come forward in hopes that it will lead to an arrest.

That shooting happened a few blocks from Magnolia Elementary School just as school was letting out.

Extended day students there were placed on lock down briefly.

Witnesses gave police a description of the car the killer was in.

They say it's a 1992 to 1994 green, blue, or turquoise Honda Civic.

If you have any information, you can call the anonymous Crime Stoppers hotline at 436-TIPS.
