ALBANY, Ga. -- Terry Mack, 44, was shot to death around 11:30 p.m. Thursday, Albany Police Department officials say, as he was sitting in his 1997 Chevrolet Blazer near 231 Cone St.

Just over four hours later and a few blocks away, another man was shot on East Road.

Police reported that an "unknown person" had approached the driver's side of Mack's Blazer and fired into the vehicle. While no arrests have been made, APD spokeswoman Phyllis Banks said that police are looking for a black male who was wearing dark clothing.

One of Mack's neighbors, who declined to be identified, said the victim was known to be a lighthearted, friendly person with no obvious enemies or ongoing altercations.

"I don't know why anybody would have shot him," the neighbor said. "He was a very nice person."

If anyone nearby had information on the murder, many of them weren't talking.

"I don't want my house to get burned down," one neighbor said.

Adding to the violence of the night, Herbert Williams Jr., 45, was shot multiple times near 110 East Road -- just a few blocks from the earlier crime scene -- around 3:45 a.m. Friday, police officials say.

According to the APD report, the wounded Williams was able to stagger to the home of a nearby resident to seek help for his injuries. Officers arrived to find Williams lying in a grassy area near a carport, Banks said.

Williams was taken to Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital, where his condition was listed as "stable but critical" Friday.

"He came to my house for help," the neighbor, who did not want to ve identitified, said. "I don't know who he is or nothing about it. That's all I have to say."

Officials say there are no suspects in the case so far. Anonymous tip information on these and other cases can be reported through Crime Stoppers at (229) 436-TIPS (8477).

I wasn't there. I am hard of hearing. I was out of town that day. It wasn't me. I can't see at night. Wow, do these gangs have control or what?

A group of people robbing, killing, raping, and pillaging itself not willing to stand up for what is right unless of course the Crimestopper reward money gets large enough. Not just when gangs are involved either--it is a way of life. .

It's amazing to me how when something happens to a family member of those who develop amnesia when the police come around, now all of a sudden they want answers when they care about the the person who who got killed. A piece of of advice for these neighborhoods. Cooperate with the police and they will leave you alone and let you go back to selling your dope. Give up the one who did it and your bottom line line won't suffer as much. We all know that's all you hoodlums care about anyhow.
