ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Albany Police reported that a boy was shot Thursday night in east Albany, but who did it is not known.

APD says that 11-year-old Jeremiah Dickey was taken to the emergency room for a gunshot wound to the left leg, and was listed as "stable."

Dickey said at around 9:30, he went outside to his mother's car to get his backpack, and while he was reaching inside the vehicle, he heard what sounded like a gunshot, and then felt a sharp pain in his leg.
