Albany -- Marvin Mills sits on his front porch, the way he always has for years. "I've been living here ever since 1992. And the flood came here in '94, and I got flooded out here," said Mills.

But now his neighborhood is slowly getting flooded with crime. "Anything like this never happened in this neighborhood. Not on this area, but I can't speak for the other end," said Mills.

And when he heard the bullets across the street at around nine Friday night; he couldn't believe it. "When I heard it, I thought somebody was knocking on a piece of tin. Like a piece of tin, I heard bam, bam, bam !! And that was it," said Mills.

Several shots were fired into the front door of the home on 1619 Sunny Lane with bullets penetrating bedroom and closet walls. "And I didn't know anything about it until I got up to go to work the next morning," said Mills.

Though the shooting surprised him, he still feels secure living on Sunny Lane. "I still feel safe. Most of the people in this neighborhood are retired, and we are like a family. Everyone watches out for one another," said Mills.

"But I wish police officers would patrol the area more because you never know what can happen with so much happening now, gang related and stuff like that. You never know what takes place."  

And now that crime is starting to take place on his street.

Another neighbor reported seeing a group guys running from the scene. No one was hurt during that shooting. If you have any information on this shooting call crime stoppers at 229-436-TIPS.
