Albany -- Winterwood Avenue appears to be a quiet Albany street, but if you take a closer look; you will find evidence that tells you otherwise. "Around 3:30 yesterday afternoon in the 3100 Block of Winterwood, a victim stated that she heard several shots inside of her home while she was sitting at her computer," said Albany Police Public Information Officer, Phyllis Banks-Whitley.

The homeowner was in her living room when she heard the shots fired into her kitchen. That's when she found damage to her kitchen table ceiling and the bullet hole through her window. Neighbors tells us police spent several hours combing through the area for clues.

"There was four shell casings retrieved from the location and as I mentioned before, she heard several shots. So that's going to be good evidence for investigators to go on. She did give a name, but investigators are working to develop more information to see if that name will lead to a solid suspect," said Banks.

The homeowners tell us that the shooting may have been gang-related. "The victim did state that her son had been having some issues with a young man. That was the name that was given to us, but we will not release the name at this time," said Banks.

For now those who live hear are just stunned this would happen here. "People want their neighborhoods to be quiet and this may have been a quiet neighborhood until something like this happens. But we encourage any citizens who may see activity going on to call police so that we can further assist them and detour any crime in their area," said Banks.

The case is very active as police continue to investigate. If you have any information about this shooting call the crime stoppers hotline at 229-436-TIPS. You can remain anonymous and your information may lead to a reward.
