Albany Police investigating Washington Avenue shooting; two sent to hospital

ALBANY, NY (NEWS10) – Police are still on the lookout for the man they say broke into an apartment on Washington Avenue and shot two people.

Police say the call came in around 10:30 p.m. Tuesday night for a shooting in a home on the 400 block of Washington Avenue.

Albany Police said a male suspect entered the home and shot two people.

The victims were a 26-year-old man and a 21-year-old woman who are brother and sister.

The man had gunshot wounds to the arm and leg. He is in stable condition.

The female had a gunshot wound to the abdomen. She is in critical condition.

Police have yet to make any arrests and say they have no one in custody.

A woman who lives directly above the apartment where the shooting took place was the one to call 9-1-1 after the shooting.

“The girl downstairs called me, so I came to the back and I opened the door and her face was full of blood and everything,” said the neighbor. “Then her brother came, there were three girls including her. Her brother came upstairs and they went downstairs. That’s when they got shot a second time.”

Police are still looking for the suspected shooter and asking anyone with information to give them a call.
