Police continue shooting investigation, suspects identified

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Albany Police have identified two suspects in connection with a shooting that happened in September.

Officials responded to the 1700 block of Beattie Road at about 9:30 p.m. on September 24.

A father was returning back home after picking up some food for his children when a red full-size sedan pulled up beside his vehicle.

According to officials, an unknown black male started yelling out of the driver's side window.

The father then got back into his vehicle and four men proceeded to exit the sedan.

The driver of the sedan exited the sedan, walked to the trunk, and got out a rifle. The occupant on the passenger's side exited with a hand gun.

Officials say the father and the four black males exchanged words.

The father attempted to drive his vehicle around the group while looking for his cell phone to call police. He then came to a rest at the stop sign on the corner of Beattie Road and Greystone Street.

The red sedan drove around his vehicle and the front passenger shot back at him.

The father managed to get the tag number of the sedan. He then left the location and proceeded to call the police.

Further investigation found that the tag number on the sedan came back as an unregistered vehicle.

Albany Police are still on the search for Xavier Porter and Jayquan Levantae Miller for aggravated assault with a firearm.

Anyone with information is asked to call CrimeSTOPPERS at 436-TIPS or the Albany Police Department at 229-430-5260.
