Two men were shot Sunday night at Salcines Park, a small, asphalt gathering spot at the northeast corner of North Howard Avenue and West Main Street in Tampa, officials said.

Paramedics transported the wounded men to an area hospital, where they both underwent surgery, Tampa police said. Their names have not been released.

As of 8 a.m. Monday, no arrest had been made nor any details released about the incident.

A Tampa police lieutenant said the shootings do not appear to be random. Officers believe the victims and the individual or people responsible knew each other. 

 No description of whoever was responsible was released.
