Two Copiague men are expected to survive after a daytime shooting in the hamlet Saturday afternoon, Suffolk County police said.

Officers from the First Precinct responded to a 911 call of a man shot in front of a home on Great Neck Road near Florida Avenue at 3 p.m., police said. Officers at the scene found two men: a 28-year-old shot once, and a 29-year-old shot multiple times. They were transported to a hospital with injuries that were not life threatening.
