ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Two men accused of murdering Terry Mack Thursday night in east Albany are behind bars. And the brother of one of those men is speaking out, saying they've got the wrong guy.

Brian Woods says his brother Michael, reported Thursday's deadly shooting in east Albany and was not the trigger man. Around 5 a.m. Saturday, 39-year-old Michael and 32-year-old Ronnie Holmes were arrested and charged with the murder of 44-year-old Terry Mack. Albany Police say Mack was shot in the back of the head as he sat in a Chevrolet Blazer on the 200 block of Cone Street.

Brian Woods says Michael and Terry were best friends. Just before the shooting, he says Terry was sitting in the car. His brother, Michael was on the porch of his house.

"My brother looked up and saw the guy and continued doing what he was doing because it's typical for people to walk through the yard. He's doing something, he look up and goes back to doing what he doing. He heard the gun shot, he look up and he didn't see nobody," said Brian Woods.

Brian feels his brother has done nothing wrong and wants someone on Cone Street to speak up.

"My brother reported it. Now he's up in Blaylock looking at murder for helping his friend," said Brian Woods.

Albany police say they gathered information through interviews, which led to the arrests.

Woods wants justice for both families involved and sends a message to the Mack family.

"I know you want some answers. I want some answers too. We trying to find out what's going on. We didn't know, just like ya'll didn't know," said Brian Woods.

Michael Woods was also charged with armed robbery and aggravated assault. Both men remain behind bars at the Dougherty County Jail.

The other murder suspect, Ronnie Holmes is facing numerous charges including murder, armed robbery, and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. Additional charges are pending for both men.
