Two men were shot about 11:40 p.m. at Grand Street between Madison Avenue and Elm Street — two blocks from the Executive Mansion — the Albany Times Union reported Saturday. Neither of the victims, ages 34 and 30, suffered life-threatening injuries, the outlet reported, citing police. The older wounded man was shot in the leg while the younger one was grazed by a bullet in the face during the same incident, Albany police officer Steve Smith said, according to the Times Union. The pair was rushed to Albany Medical Center, WNYT reported. Cops did not have any suspects in the shooting as of Saturday morning, according to the Times Union.
