Police mum on Albany homicide

Candles burned at the base of a utility pole on Cortland Place Sunday night in a memorial for 26-year-old Edward Maxim of Albany, killed early Saturday morning in a shooting police have said little about.

"I don't think they have much to go on," said one woman who told CBS6 News she was Maxim's aunt. She and three of Maxim's cousins had gathered near the site where they say someone shot Maxim around ten past three on Saturday morning. The women said police were not sharing information about the shooting with Maxim's family, which they said includes a two-year-old son and someone with whom Maxim "was in a relationship."

According to family, Maxim was employed at FedEx in Rensselaer. An employee there pointed out the nearly empty parking lot and said anyone who knew Maxim would likely not be at work until Monday morning.

Albany Police Spokesman Steven Smith put out a brief news release regarding the homicide at 4:10 p.m. Saturday. Subsequent messages to Smith via text and telephone have not been returned. Smith said Saturday that someone reported shots fired in the area of Cortland and Washington Avenue. Police later received a call from Albany Medical Center saying a man had come in with gunshot wounds.
