Two men are recovering after a shooting outside a night club on Rochester's East End early Friday morning.

Dozens of police cars raced to the scene around 2 a.m. across the street from Magic City on Lawrence Street. Investigators say a man opened fire in a parking lot across from the club, shooting 23-year-old Devin Davis and 24-year-old Princeton Allison both of Rochester.

Police say both men were shot in the legs, and one was also shot in the lower torso. Davis and Allison men were taken to Strong Memorial where doctors say their injuries are non life-threatening. Police are not saying if the men were targets or just bystanders. Police agencies across the area have been notified to look for a specific car seen leaving the area that might be connected to the shooting.

The incident comes just a few months after another shooting in the East End outside the Captain's Attic Bar on Charlotte Street. Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren has previously said she is working with police to make sure the area is safe.
