ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Albany Police say they have a person-of-interest in the shooting death of 17-year-old Edward William Bell, Jr. He was gunned down just before 7:00 Wednesday night at a home in the 1300 block of East Society.

"Right now, we just know this was a place where a group of males were at this evening," said APD spokesperson Phyllis Whitley-Banks.

Police say when they arrived on the scene they found Bell suffering from what appeared to be a gunshot wound, but would not say where or how many times he was shot. He was transported to Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital where he later died.

Investigators have questioned witnesses, but so far have not named a suspect in the case. However, they believe the victim likely knew his killer.

Bell now becomes the second Albany teen fatally gunned down this year - marking the city's seventh homicide in 2008.
