Police have identified two men who were shot following a fight that began near the Club Network early Saturday morning.

Police say officers responded to Central Avenue near Franklin Street around 2 a.m. for a report of a large fight where gun shots were fired. Upon arrival, officers found a 27-year-old Anthony Hall with a gunshot wound to his lower body. He was taken to Strong Memorial Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

While police were on the scene at Central Avenue, a second victim – 22-year-old Jaquan Hymes of Rochester -- arrived at Rochester General Hospital. He also suffered a gunshot wound to his lower body. Police say his injuries are also considered non-life threatening.

The shooting is still under investigation and it's not clear what led up to the fight.
This is not the first time violence has broken out in that area. In June, two men were shot and killed following a fight across the street from the Club Network. The suspect in the June shooting, Ralph Strong Junior, is currently being held awaiting trial.
