The Albany Police Department says they are looking for 41-year-old Wesley L. Anderson for shooting a man at Long John Silver's on East Oglethorpe Blvd. Wednesday.

APD also wanted Damien King, but after King went to police and was interviewed by detectives Friday, King was ruled out as a person of interest in the crime.

Two men wanted for the shooting and armed robbery have eluded police for nearly three days.

APD Giorgi Kartvilish, age 32, was taken to Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital with a gunshot wound to the arm. He was shot by one of two men who tried to rob him.  He may not have understood the robber's demand for his money.

Kartvilish's companion, Iraqli Bokuchava, was suffered a minor foot injury when he tried to help his friend during the incident.

Anyone with information regarding these individuals should call Crime Stoppers at 229-436-TIPS or the Albany Police Department.
