Albany Police investigating afternoon shooting on Park Avenue

ALBANY, NY (NEWS10) – Albany Police are investigating a shooting that occurred on Park Avenue.

On Sunday at around 1:00pm, officers responded to the 600 block of Park Avenue for a report of a shooting. Upon arrival, officers learned that a male victim had been shot and was taken to Albany Medical Center.

The victim is currently being treated at the hospital for non-life threatening injuries.

At this time it is unknown how the victim got to the hospital and whether he drove himself there.

But this afternoon, News10ABC did find police investigating a white car that appeared to have a bullet hole in its windshield at Albany Med.

“I’m actually puzzled and surprised,” said Owusu Anane.

Owusu Anane lives in the area where the shooting took place this afternoon.

He calls it a friendly and quiet neighborhood filled with students, seniors, and people of various demographics.

“This is such a community that looks out for one another and this is a community that we look out for our neighbors,” said Anane.

So he says he’s disheartened to hear what happened.

“I’m at loss for words and I hope that the victim is okay,” said Anane.

Last night around 7:30 police also responded to a shooting in the area of Broad Street and Schuyler Street.

In that incident, a 61-year-old male was shot and taken to Albany Med with non-life threatening injuries.

Police say it’s unknown whether the two shootings are connected.

The incident remains under investigation and it’s unknown at this time if this incident is connected to the shooting Saturday night on Broad Street.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Albany Police Detective Division at 518-462-8039.
