Gunmen rob local bar

ALBANY, Ga. — Two men, armed with guns, took a shot at a singer at an Albany bar during a robbery attempt overnight, police say.

Between 12:15 and 12:30 a.m. Wednesday, police say two slender black men armed with guns walked into the Benchwarmers Bar on Sylvester Road, brandishing their weapons, police say.

One of the men fired his weapon towards the rear of the people in the direction of a singer who was performing.

Before fleeing the scene, the men took cash from several customers and took a cash box from the business. No injuries were reported and the suspects remain at large.

This crime is getting straight crazy and it doesn't matter what side of town, it's everywhere. I know the economy isn't too good here but I feel that not all of it is connected to the economy and more of a gang problem in our community.

Interesting--within the last four (4) days there have been three (3) homes broken into within one block of this business during daylight hours while homeowners were at work/school. Maybe it's time to have "gun safety" classes within this neighborhood.

Thurman, that seems to be the new fad for thieves, breakins while people are gone to work. It is happening on this side of town also. Here it is two young kids on bicycles riding around during the day. Remember you can shoot them only if you feel threatened. If they break into your house while you are there you have a right to defend yourself. I am sure these kids think it is a fun game and I would hate to see it end with one of them shot.

Yes it would be much better if both of them were shot.

How is it that when confronted by these thugs one cannot feel threatened? They are not kids they are criminals. The cease to be kids when they enter someone's property with criminal intentions.

Frankly, if the singer were doing yet another terrible version of 'Mustang Sally' the shooting should be justified.

billyb, I like your style. I'll bet the singer had red high heels on.
