HARLEM — Two men were shot near a popular Harlem bowling alley early Wednesday morning, FDNY officials confirmed.

One of the men, 35, was shot in the leg, while the other, 31, took a bullet to the arm. Both were taken to Saint Luke’s Hospital in stable condition, according to the FDNY.

Emergency workers received word of a shooting on Seventh Avenue and West 127th Street at 2:31 a.m., the FDNY said. But police set up police tape at the corner of Seventh Avenue and West 126th, outside of a building that houses Harlem Lanes bowling alley, later that morning.

Police had not made any arrests as of 8:30 a.m. Tuesday, according to an NYPD spokeswoman.

There was no indication that the injured men had been at the bowling alley prior to the shooting. Harlem Lanes normally closes for business at 11 p.m. on Tuesday nights.
