The two men who were shot on a Huntington Station street early Wednesday morning were treated for minor injuries and released from the hospital, according to a spokeswoman for the Huntington Community First Aid Squad.

The two men, who were not identified, were brought to Huntington Hospital at around 1:15 a.m. by the squad.

Suffolk police said the men, 20 and 25 years old respectively, were standing at East 11 St. and Grand Place, a narrow three-way intersection near Depot Road, when they were “approached by a group of males who shot them.”

Andrea Golinsky, spokeswoman for the squad, said the men were treated for their injuries on arrival.

“They were banged up, but were released shortly after the hospital checked them out,” she added.

When asked whether the incident is believed to be drug or gang related a Suffolk police spokeswoman declined the comment, citing the ongoing investigation.

Huntington Town spokesman A.J. Carter was asked if any of the town’s newly-hired park rangers were called to the scene for assistance. Carter deferred questions to Suffolk police.

Suffolk detectives are asking anyone with information to call the Second Squad at 631-854-8252 or call the Crime Stoppers hotline anonymously at 1-800-220-TIPS.
