Teen hit in head in drive-by shooting

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Police were called to the Tompkins Avenue and Franklin Street areas about 3:00AM Sunday, when shots were fired.

APD says that 19 year old Adrian Lumpkin and his friend 18 year old Quadarrien Harvey were shot at, and Lumpkin was struck in the head by a bullet.

The teens were attending a party at the Regency Apartments, and left the building when an argument started.

They were approached by a gray vehicle in the 100 block of Franklin Street, and someone inside the car began shooting.

Lumpkin was struck in the head, but amazingly, doctors say his injury is not life threatening. Harvey was not hit.

The Albany Police Department's Gang Unit is investigating the incident.
