ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Albany Police said that a Facebook post started a wild shootout from moving cars that went on for miles across the city early Friday morning, endangering untold numbers of people.

Felecia Glasco, 21, her sister, Barbara Glasco, 22, and Joshua Mallory, 26, were all arrested on multiple counts of aggravated assault.

Police said a Facebook post enraged the sisters, setting off the gun-play.

Officials said that around 1:30 a.m. on Friday an argument at a club in the 700 block of South Slappey led to the Glascos, Mallory and two other people firing multiple shots from a moving car at another vehicle they were chasing.  

The shooting went up and down South Slappey Boulevard and into East Albany. Police said that no one was hurt, but people across the city were endangered.

"The magnitude of that. It's unreal. That someone would taken and put everyone in danger. Driving through a city and firing shots left and right. Over a Facebook post," said Lt. Keithen Hall with the Albany Police Department.

Albany Police said that they are seeking two more people for involvement in the shooting.  

Police said on Friday that the fight and shooting started at the Sports Zone Bar, but the owner, Eric Green, said the fight did not involve his business, but instead was in an alley near his business.
