Knoxville (WVLT) - One person is being treated in the hospital after being shot multiple times at an East Knoxville bar.

The Knoxville Police Department says they received a call around 2:30 a.m. Friday morning that a man had been shot at East Magnolia and Prosser near Phatz Bar and Grill.

When officers arrived on the scene, they found a man in his mid-twenties shot several times laying on the sidewalk.

He was taken to U.T. Medical Center for his injuries.

A short time later, another 21 year old Jarvis Hodge showed up at Baptist Hospital with a gunshot wound, and was transferred to U.T. Hospital to be treated.

Both victims are in critical condition.
