ALBANY, Ga. —
Police and residents in Albany say they fear gang retaliation following the weekend drive-by shooting deaths of two young men over the weekend.
Investigators were continuing a manhunt for whoever gunned down 20-year-olds William Davis Junior and Desmond Williams on Sunday night.
Authorities tell WALB-TV (http://bit.ly/YLTxYE) that the shooting sent bullets flying into nearby homes and cars. Witnesses say about 50 shots were fired from a passing car, killing the two men as they stood in a yard.
Authorities say their investigation is being hampered because many witnesses are reluctant to talk to police.
District Attorney Greg Edwards says the murders are gang-related and people in that neighborhood apparently are not telling investigators what they need to know to track down the killers.
