Two men indicted for robbing Albany pool hall

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Two men are indicted for a violent armed robbery of an Albany pool hall during which several shots were fired.

Jimmy Dorsey and Milton Gainer were indicted on armed robbery, aggravated assault, false imprisonment, and gun charges.

Prosecutors say they robbed the Metro Pool Hall on South Slappey July 16th.

Prosecutors say only one female employee was in the business, but the robbers fired several shots to hold her against her will.

Dougherty District Attorney Greg Edwards said "The penalties match the gravity of the crime.  You can get as much as a minimum of ten years without parole up to life in prison for an armed robbery."

The indictment says Dorsey fired the gunshots.
