July 07, 2018

For Immediate Release: July 7, 2018

ALBANY, NY – Albany police are currently investigating a homicide that occurred early this morning on Teunis Street.

At approximately 3:10 a.m., officers responded to Teunis Street between Second and Third Avenues for a report of shots fired. Upon arrival, officers located two male individuals on Teunis Street with gunshot wounds.

One of the victims, a 31-year-old from Albany, sustained a gunshot wound to the arm. He was treated at the scene by medical personnel and transported to Albany Medical Center Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

A second victim, a 32-year-old from Albany, was shot three times in the torso and also transported to Albany Medical Center Hospital where he was later pronounced deceased.

Preliminarily, it appears that there was a large altercation at the location involving a group of girls and that the victims may have been attempting to break up the fight when they were shot.

The incident, however, remains under investigation.

The name of the deceased will not be released until proper notifications have been made.
