Dog injured when bullets fired into house

ALBANY, Ga. — The occupants of an Albany home escaped injury Monday morning after police say someone fired into their house.

Their dog, however, wasn’t so lucky.

Albany Police Department spokesperson Phyllis Banks said that police responded to the 400 block of West Lincoln Avenue around 6:50 a.m. Monday in reference to shots being fired.

Police discovered a glass window broken at 415 W. Lincoln Ave. and, upon further investigation, found a bullet hole in a window frame at the home.

Inside, Banks said a number of people had been sleeping and were unaware that any shots had been fired.

Later Monday morning, police returned to the residence after homeowner Demarkco Malone noticed that the family dog, a black and white pit bull, appeared to have been struck in the abdomen.

Officers responding to the call said the dog was alive and that it appeared the bullet had passed through the dog.

Somebody is always having to shoot at something or someone. They have nothing better to do with their lives.

Why can't people live peacefully in this world? Some always cause problems wherever they go.

Was it random, or purpose driven? Sometimes you have to be ready when you cross certain folks, other times it's just your turn.

Whether it was random or on purpose there is no excuse for this action.
