Albany Police investigate two overnight shootings

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Two people were wounded in separate shootings early Thursday morning.

The two incidents happened nearly an hour apart.

The call came in to police around 12:30, a 21 year old man was shot in each leg/upper calf area. It happened in the 1100 block of University Street. APD says the victim was standing outside when a Ford type vehicle parked close by.

The victim heard two gun shots and the Ford drove off after a third was fired off.

Not long after, around 2:00, police were called to the 400 block of Wadkins Avenue where a 31 year old man was shot in the chest while walking on Martin Luther King Jr. Dr. with two others.

That's when a vehicle drove by and someone inside began firing shots.

Both victims were taken to Phoebe Putney Hospital. There is no word on their conditions.

The shootings come a day after an Albany teen was shot in the leg during a drive-by on West Society Street.
