      Albany Police officers and EMS responded to a shooting early Wednesday morning.

      An alarm went off at the residence of 1563 Georgia Avenue. The individual home at the time retrieved a firearm because he thought there was a burglar inside.

      He spotted a dark figure moving, fired one shot and struck the individual in the elbow.

      The individual shot was his roommate; who was not expected to come home.

      One person was sent to the hospital for further treatment.
