An East Albany man is shot outside his home late Tuesday

ALBANY — An Albany man was shot outside his home on 1300 block of East Society Avenue Tuesday, police officials say. Officers of the Albany Police Department responded to the emergency room of Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital around 11:30 p.m. where Eric Canady, 29, stated he’d been shot in his right knee, police officials say.

Canady said he had heard his mother trying to break up a fight outside their home and when he went outside he heard a gunshot from behind him and knew that was shot, officials say.
