ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

An East Albany mother said her 11-year-old son is recovering, after being shot outside their home Thursday night.

Erica White did not want to go on camera, but told WALB Friday morning that 11-year-old Jeremiah Dickey stayed home from school, as he recovered.

White said her son went outside their mobile home on Mobile Avenue about 9:30 p.m. to get his backpack, when she heard a gunshot. He went back inside saying he was in pain, then White found two bleeding holes in his leg. He was treated at the hospital.

Police are still investigating. If you have any information, call Crime Stoppers at 436-TIPS.
