Two men are recovering at a local hospital after being wounded in a Brooklyn shooting early Friday morning.

Police sources said the victims were shot inside 2016 Regent Place in Flatbush at about 4:35 a.m. on Dec. 31.

Officers from the 70th Precinct, in responding to a 911 call about the shooting, found the wounded victims inside a third-floor hallway.

One of the victims, a 34-year-old man, took bullets to his stomach and leg, while the second, a 39-year-old man, was shot in the right armpit.

EMS rushed both victims to Kings County Hospital for treatment of injuries not considered life threatening.

But sources familiar with the investigation said the two victims are being uncooperative with detectives trying to piece together the circumstances leading up to the double shooting.
