Albany police respond to reported shootings, stabbing

Three hospitalized in aggravated assaults

ALBANY — There were a number of aggravated assaults reported over the weekend, two of which resulted in non life-threatening injuries, reports from the Albany Police Department show.

Police officials said officers responded to Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital in regards to a possible stabbing at around 3 a.m. on Saturday. Upon arrival, contact was made with Calvin Hunt, 51, who stated that he had been stabbed by someone at 605 N. Washington St. Hunt could not give any further information due to being treated, but he did have what appeared to be a wound in the top portion of his stomach, officials said.

Hunt was discharged by Monday morning, a hospital spokeswoman said.

Quindathon Baldwin and Tiberris Demps were victims in a shooting that was reported at 11:30 p.m. on Saturday, officials from the APD said.

The victims stated while at 1100 W. Oglethorpe Blvd., they were approached by five men in the alley. At that time, one of the suspects pulled out an unknown type of handgun. The suspect then fired the weapon hitting one victim in the left forearm, and the other victim in the right leg, police said.

Officers reportedly canvassed the area for the suspects to no avail. Both Baldwin and Demps had been discharged by Monday morning, a spokeswoman for Phoebe said.

A third incident was reported to have taken place at around 3:20 a.m. on Sunday at 1120 W. Gordon Ave., reports show.

Both reporting victims said an unknown man got out of a tan Ford Expedition and fired one shot into the ground after the victims got into a verbal argument with a second group of unknown people. Some of those in the second group returned to the scene attempting to start another fight with the victims — which eventually prompted the gunshot. No one was injured.

The man and the vehicle from the West Gordon Avenue incident were gone upon the arrival of the responding officer, police said.
