ALBANY (WALB) - The search continues for two suspects who shot a man this afternoon behind an east Albany Long John Silvers.

Giorgi Kartvilish, age 32, was taken to Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital with a gunshot wound to the arm.

Nearby Dougherty County Middle School was briefly put on lock down.

Detectives retrieved surveillance video of the suspects fleeing the scene in a black Chevy S-10 pickup.

APD describes suspect one as: A black male, dark complexion, wearing a white polo shirt,  white polo hat. 

Suspect Two: Has a medium complexion and low hair cut.

The suspects appear to be on foot, in the vicinity of East Broad Avenue and Clark Avenue.
