Albany suffers second murder in a week

Albany Police are searching for a killer. They say 20 year old Bruce Mullen was shot in the chest at Hidden Oaks Apartments.

Mullen was rushed to Phoebe Putney Hospital and was pronounced dead shortly after. This all started after someone called 911 about hearing gunshots on Mock Road after midnight.

Once APD arrived, they found Mullen lying down in the breezeway near apartment 194. Police interviewed witnesses in an effort to find the gunman.

The District Attorney says his investigators believe there may have been some sort of drug transaction going on in the area. They say they know that a sizeable number of people were nearby, and some of are "persons of interest."

This is the second shooting at an apartment complex in less than four days. On Sunday night in Greenbriar Apartments, 30 year old Michael Williams was shot twice.

Police say he was killed by his ex-girlfriend, 28 year old Marissa Nisbett. Nisbett then turned the gun on herself. 

If you have any information call Crime-Stoppers at 436-tips.
