A man and a boy were shot Sunday night after a brawl broke out in south central Colorado Springs, police said.

The two males are expected to recover from their wounds, Colorado Springs police said.

Callers reported several gunshots just before 10 p.m. in the area of Winnepeg Drive and Hutchinson Drive, near Circle Drive and Airport Road. According to police, the callers said they had seen two cars leaving the area, and believe the incident was gang-related.
