At midnight, 21-year-old Octavious Williams was shot in the ankle as he was sitting in a chair outside his home on 305 MLK Drive.

Williams was transported by EMS to Phoebe Putney Hospital in Albany for treatment. His family said they counted 5 bullet holes in their home after everything was over.

An hour later a mobile home was shot at on the 400 block of Worth St. The Blake family was inside and uninjured.

Both families say they're lucky to be alive.

Sylvester police are searching for suspects and have no leads at this time.
