COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -  Two local teenagers are recovering after gun shots rang out at a Columbus nightclub.

Columbus investigators say on Saturday night, Tiffany's, a club on Brennan Road, was hosting a teen party. Around 11:30, a fight broke out inside on the dance floor and partygoers heard two gun shots. Between 15 and 20 more shots were heard out in the parking lot and when officers got there, they found 19-year-old Jamal Battle on the side of the road outside of the club with a gunshot wound to his chest. Another 16-year-old boy with a bullet wound to his left shoulder was driven to the Medical Center in a private car. Police believe both men were shot inside the club when the initial gun fire broke out.

Detectives say the victims are in stable condition. According to police, many of the teens at the club say they did not see what happened.

No arrests have been made in the double shooting.
