- Police are investigating a shooting that left two men injured in Leesburg.

The incident happened Saturday night outside of a Circle K store on West Main Street, according to the Leesburg Police Department.

Police responded around 8 p.m. for reports of shots fired and located two injured men.

On Sunday, police identified the men as David Donovan, 41, and Marc Knotts, 48.
