ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The Albany Police Department has arrested one man in connection to a drive-by shooting.

Jessie Lunsford, 20, was arrested Friday after officials found a white Range Rover used in the drive-by was found abandoned Thursday night in the 800 block of West Society Avenue.

Lunsford is expected to be charged with four counts of aggravated assault and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime but more charges could be pending.

The vehicle was reported stolen in Florida. They have impounded the vehicle.

Several South Albany neighbors said they were very concerned when shots were fired on Willard Avenue Wednesday night.

Albany Police crime scene investigators and officers scoured the area around Willard Avenue, looking at evidence from the shooting.

At least five shell casings were found on the road by investigators.

Neighbors said no one was hit by any bullets, but the number of shots frightened them.

The woman whose house was struck by bullets says she is leaving.

This is the same area that two men were shot and killed in March of 2013 in what prosecutors said was a gang involved murder, where more than 50 shots were fired in a drive-by shooting.  

Two men were recently acquitted of those murders, with two more men set to face trial soon.
