APD issues gunfire alert

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Albany police are looking for two men who fired shots toward a house on Cherry Street.

This morning around 9:45, two shots were fired outside 922 Cherry Avenue.

The two men ran away. One of them was wearing a brown hoodie with the white letters "ATC."

The other suspect was about 5-feet 7-inches tall and wore a black and white hoodie and a black and white hat.

Thankfully no one was injured, but it obviously frightened the people in the home.

"They were watching TV and my neighbors kids they heard the gun shots and I guess they thought it was fire crackers or something and they wanted to come outside to see what was going on, but yeah they were scared and they're still scared that's why they're in the house now," said Alisa Sawyer.

 If you have any information that could help investigators, call Crimestoppers at 436-TIPS.
