ALBANY, Ga. — The Albany Police Department is investigating another drive-by shooting following Sunday night's drive-by that claimed the lives of two young men.
Several shots were fired from a vehicle toward a residence on the 1300 block of Avalon Avenue around 9:30 Monday night.
Two people were outside the home and four people were inside, but no one was hit.
The latest shooting occurred less that 24 hours after William Lamont Davis Jr. and Desmond Treon Williams were killed while standing near a vehicle outside a residence at 514 Willard Ave. when the occupants of a vehicle drove by and opened fire.
Police say that Davis and Williams were standing next to a tan Ford Crown Victoria when the occupants of a vehicle drove by and fired several shots in their direction.
A person inside the vehicle, Nicolas Tremaine Wright, was not injured.
Davis and Williams are the first Albany homicides of the year.
The shooting prompted police to elevate their patrols in certain Albany neighborhoods in hopes of heading off any plans for retaliation. The APD, however, would not confirm whether they believed the separate shootings were related.
"We are working these cases aggressively as we have in the past," Albany Police Chief John Proctor said. "We are getting a lot of calls from the public, but in prior cases we've been overrun with calls. We have good suspects, but we need more info to tie to the cases."
Proctor did not name any suspects and said the investigations are ongoing.
