One man remains in critical condition and another has been stabilized after both were shot early Sunday morning at a Garden City club, reported Nassau County Police.

Detectives said the incident was sparked after a fight broke out among patrons of Mint Restaurant and Lounge on Ring Road. The argument escalated and an unknown person opened fire into a crowd of people, cops said. Two unidentified men, ages 21 and 23, were hit, one in the head and one in the leg, cops said.

The two victims were rushed to a nearby hospital and treated for their injuries. One is in critical condition with a head wound while the other is now in stable condition.

Cops did not release a description of the gunman but are asking anyone with information about the incident to call Nassau County Crime Stoppers at 1-800-244-TIPS. All callers will remain anonymous.

This is a breaking news story. Patch will update as new information becomes available.

@John E. Law I agree with your comment about the property values they are nose diving fast. The Garden City Streets are still very dirty. I never tried the steak but they do have a very good ox tail appetizer.

Color is not the issue crime is. It's ok to shoot someone if your light? I don't understand who's more of an idiot. This holier then thou thing needs to stop. It's childish and ignorant.

Lola, stop being so politically correct. If you live in Garden City you realize you're surrounded by garbage from all sides...black, white, and hispanic people. Yes, not all black, white, and hispanic people are bad. Yes, we have a lot of white trash too here in GC..not LIGHT trash....I'll say it again...WHITE trash who commit crimes too. We have White trash junkies that live in GC committing crimes too. But it wasn't a "light man" in your terms who pistol whipped a young female Garden City resident last week and stole her phone either. Color has a lot to do with crime. Name one black community in America that people are saying "I need to move there". It's not happening....it's reality. Al Sharpton is not your friend.
