Investigation underway after Albany man shot to death
ALBANY, Ga. (WALB) - An investigation is underway after an Albany man was found shot to death Wednesday morning, according to the Albany Police Department (APD).
The shooting incident happened in the 800 block of 7th Avenue shortly after midnight.
The victim, later identified as Larry Calloway, 39, was found with multiple gunshot wounds.
“Albany Police Department is the one that responded along with EMS. And found the deceased person, Mr. Larry Calloway, laying at the back door out on the yard with multiple gunshot wounds,” Dougherty County Coroner Michael Fowler said.
Police said another person was also in the home at the time of the shooting. They are asking neighbors in the area for surveillance video.
“One thing I do want to let that community, that area, know is that we do not believe that there is a threat to anyone else in the community,” Michael Persley, Albany police chief, said. “We are still looking for the suspect or suspects who are involved in this. And if anyone has any information, please let us know.”
Persley said these random acts of violence have to stop.
“People need to start respecting human life,” he said. “That’s the biggest thing. Whenever you have a disagreement with someone, picking up a weapon shouldn’t be the very first thing that you go to.”
The investigation is still ongoing.
Anyone with information is asked to call CrimeStoppers at (229) 436-TIPS or the Albany Police Department at (229) 431-2100.
