ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Detectives with the Albany Police Department are trying to find out who fired guns that left two people wounded Monday night.

One person was struck by a bullet on Cotton Avenue, and the other was on MLK Boulevard.

In the first incident, a man was struck in the arm, and his apartment was shot at. He was treated at Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital.

Then, a man was walking in the 2300 block of MLK, when a dark sedan rolled up, and someone fired a shot from the back seat.

The bullet hit him in the foot, and the car drove off. The victim wasn't able to give much of a description.

Police also investigated four other aggravated assaults that happened Monday, all involving firearms.

If you know anything about these crimes, call APD or Albany CrimeSTOPPERS at (229) 436-TIPS, and you may earn a reward.
