Albany police are investigating multiple shootings from Thursday night.

It's unclear if the shootings are related, and police tell NewsChannel 13 they have no suspects at this time.


The two shootings make four in the last week and now some community organizations want the city to step up and get more involved to help stop the violence.

NewsChannel 13 is told the first call for a shooting came in around 8 p.m. Thursday, after someone walked into Memorial Hospital with a gunshot wound to the shoulder.

Police say he was shot during an altercation in the area of Bonheim Street and Broadway.

Two hours later, they responded to shots fired in the area of First Street and Lexington. There, they found a 25-year-old man had a non-life-threatening bullet wound in his stomach.
