ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Albany police are investigate early morning shootings, fights and an attempted robbery. About 3:00 a.m. police responded to a report of a fight in the 600 block of West Society Avenue.

As officers were there, someone fired shots from a gray car in the alley toward a home where a woman was on the back porch with two friends. Two small children were inside. One bullet went through the kitchen window. No one was injured.

About 10-minutes later just a few blocks away, shots were fired at 717 West 1st Avenue. There were bullet holes in the living room wall and damage to two vehicles parked in the front yard.

Shortly before 5 o'clock Monday morning, shots were fired in the 700 block of West Whitney Avenue after a fight broke out. A woman told police as she returned home she saw several men get out of a silver car and start fighting with some other men, then shots were fired. Police don't think anyone was shot.

Albany police are also investigating a reported robbery attempt. A man said he was walking in the 900 block of West Highland Avenue about 2:00 a.m. when two men with guns tried to rob him. He ran away.
