Two men were rushed to the hospital after a shooting on Point Street around 8:45 p.m. Wednesday night.

Police say Stephen Lugo, 24, and Shaquan Poulin, 19, were sitting out in front of a house when they were fired upon by an unknown number of shooters. Both were shot multiple times.

One of the men was rushed into surgery. Police tell ABC 6 News they were not able to get much information for either of the victims before they were transported to the hospital.

Police do believe that the shooter or shooters knew the victims and that it was gang-related.

Though the search for suspects in on-going, authorities say there is no threat to the general public.
