Gunshots on Cullom just east of Albany

Taking the dog out when we heard and saw gunfire. This was about 6:35PM this evening. Already reported it to the police and they've just arrived to the scene. Wish we could have been a better witness to identify the suspects but we were more concerned with getting inside..

    Hey MDD the purpose of the loud mufflers is so they are able to be seen and heard, for safety reasons. For you to make insensitive comments
    Is extremely rude, Competitor just lost a dear friend to a senseless act of drinking and driving. Have some compassion for others and to say "learn to cope !" Is just a terrible thing to say to someone, who has been through a tremendous loss. His friend loved life and was riding home from work, when someone decided to drink and get behind the wheel, intoxicated and drive, striking him and killing him.

    Thank you! Your comment has touched sincerely me and has me in tears. We all lost a great man, and I know I keep saying that. His daughters are left without the Dad that literally loves them to pieces. It was so heart breaking to see them. What do you say, it's going to be ok? No, we all know for these girls it's not and they're hearts have been ripped in pieces. Chuck was like that person I wish I could be better at being. He also served and protected this city! Truly solid/ honorable PO. So the lack of that respect alone is unacceptable! To see grown men crying at the wake, my significant other hurt and was also tuff to see. And to your point, Chuck didn't have topass on. Someone else made the selfish choice to drive while drunk and took his life away.

    I honestly don't care who mutes me or doesn't care to engage or read what my thought process is. But don't go out of your way to be so disrespectful either.

    Again Kansas girl , thank you!

    Stay safe out there and have a great day!

    Ward. I'm sorry for your pain as well.

    Yes it was! From the moment I saw his photo while standing in line.

    My emotions just took over me and I couldn't stop crying uncontrollably. This just didn't have to happen. And that's the worse part, you know. Someone else's made a selfish choice and didn't give a rats a!! About anyone else.

    We're all better because we had the honor of having him in our lives that's for sure!!!
    As he's laid to rest today, and rises up above may he rejoice and make all the God and all the other all Angels laugh now......👮🏻🙏😇 until we meet again Chuck, we love you ❤️!!
