*UPDATE: The victim of Saturday night’s homicide was identified Monday morning as Zy-Quaveone Mayo, 18, of Albany.
ALBANY, N.Y. (WTEN) – An 18-year-old man has died and three more men have been wounded during a Saturday night shooting in the area of First Street and Quail Street in Albany.
Albany police say at least 25 shots were fired when one group in a vehicle opened fire on another group who were standing on Quail Street. The vehicle was seen driving around the neighborhood for several hours prior to the shooting.
Speaking at the scene, Albany Police Chief Eric Hawkins claims the shooting could be linked to a feud between rival groups.
“This is another example of our young men not resolving conflict in peaceful, non-violent, ways. From what we understand this is some conflict between some groups of individuals. We don’t know exactly what the source of this conflict is, but we know that some groups are feuding, and we’ve been saying this consistently. Our young men and young women in our community have to resolve these conflicts in non-violent, peaceful, ways.Chief Eric Hawkins

All four victims were transported to Albany Medical Center. The three survivors are being treated for non-life threatening injuries.
The investigation is still ongoing. Chief Hawkins says the department has several good leads in terms of vehicles and potential suspects, but Albany Police are also appealing for public help. Anyone with information is asked to call the Albany Police Detective Division at (518)-462-8039.
