ALBANY -- It was anything but a quiet night in the city. 

Albany Police are investigating three reported shootings that injured five people.


The first shots were heard around 11 p.m. Friday near Second Avenue and Moore Street. When police arrived, they found a 20-year-old man with a gunshot wound to the leg. He was transported to Albany Medical Center for non-life threatening injuries. 

Less than 2 hours later, officers made a visit to First and Quail streets after another shooting call. This time, they found a 30-year-old man who also was suffering a gunshot wound to the leg. He too, was transported to Albany Medical Center for non-life threatening injuries. 

Just moments after, police got a call from Albany Medical Center and Albany Memorial Hospital. They had two 38-year-old men walk in with gunshot wounds. After investigating, police say these two men were shot during the incident at First and Quail streets. 

Then, just 10 minutes after the last shooting report, a 49-year-old man entered Albany Med's emergency room with a gunshot wound to the back. He said he was shot by an unknown suspect near Livingston Avenue and Thornton Street.
