Police: 2 men gunned down in Longwood

Two men were shot outside a social club on Westchester Avenue early Saturday morning, police say.

According to eyewitnesses, the victims of the shooting attended a party at the Rincon Latino Social Club. When they went outside and were approaching the corner of Intervale Avenue, several shots rang out.

Neighbors say they often hear fighting on the weekend near the club. However, owner Jose Reyes says the shooting did not occur inside his establishment, and he cannot control what happens outside the club.

The victims of the shooting were taken to a local hospital with bullet wounds to their legs.
