ALBANY - Two men have pleaded guilty to a shooting on South Pearl Street back in September.

The Albany County D.A.'s office says Hector Balls, 23, and La-Meik Taylor, 24, began arguing with the victim.

That's when the suspects allegedly took out the gun and started shooting it.

The victim tried to wrestle away the gun from the suspects. He suffered non-life threatening injuries.

Both suspects face up to 12 years in state prison when they are sentenced in March.
