Mother: Albany shooting was gang related

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

A South Albany man is recovering after being shot over the weekend at a party.

The victim's mother thinks the shooting was gang related and she wants to take action to prevent gang violence.

33-year old Jamaal Clyde was shot 3 times Saturday night outside this home in the 800 block of Corn Avenue.

One bullet broke his jaw, another shattered his hip, and a third wounded his hand.

Clyde is now recovering in Athens with his mother.

Motivated by her son's attack, Teresa Clyde plans to bring her non-profit agency "One Family Under One Roof" to Albany to fight gang violence.

"I feel like the problem with the gangs actually starts in the home," she said. "We hear so many things are missing from the home- the father, the finances."

Albany Police issued Aggravated Assault warrants against 18-year-old Frankie Newberry in this shooting.

He has not been caught.

Clyde said she hopes to begin work with her agency addressing gang problems in Albany in the new year.
