Law enforcement officials in Philadelphia are investigating after two men were injured in a shooting that happened in the early morning hours on Sunday.

According to police, the incident happened just after 2 a.m. in front of Jack's Famous Bar, located along the 800 block of Allegheny Avenue, near the intersection with Kensington Avenue, in Philadelphia's Kensington neighborhood.

Officials said that, at that time, a 30-year-old man was shot three times, including once in the chest, and a 20-year-old man was shot in the leg.
