Man killed in East Albany shooting

ALBANY, Ga. — The city's third murder of the year happened over night when a man was shot to death in East Albany.

Albany Police Spokesperson Phyllis Banks says that Terry Mack, a 44-year-old black male, was shot and killed on the 200 block of Cone Street around 11:30 Thursday night. Banks says investigators believe he was sitting in his 1997 Chevy Blazer when someone approached the vehicle and shot into the vehicle.

The area around Mayfair Trailer Park has proven to be a nuisance for the APD's robbery/homicide unit. In January, Anthony Williams was shot following a dispute on the 200 block of Cone Street. Police say the suspect, 62-year-old Eddie Banks, fired a weapon at least three times at Williams, he was struck at least once but survived his injuries.

Later in the evening, police responded to a report of a suspicious person at 110 East Road and found 45 year-old Herbert Williams Jr. in a grassy area near a carport where he had collapsed after staggering down the road after having been shot multiple times. He remains hospitalized in critical condition.
