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.
