ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Albany Police reported that the victim in an Albany shooting on Tuesday passed away at the hospital around 5:50 p.m.

According to a post on the APD Facebook page, the shooting happened after 4 p.m.

Investigators quickly began canvassing the area looking for the shooters and talking to people who may have seen what happened.

One man is 5'10" and around 140 lbs. The other is between 5'7"-5'9".

At least one person was injured and transported to the hospital.

Police are allowing residents to return to the complex.
