BRANDON - Hillsborough County sheriff's deputies are investigating the Monday night shooting of two brothers near Natures Way Boulevard and Golf Meadow Drive.

Deputies say a friend drove the two men - Brendan Reed McGall, 28, of 754 Caliente Drive, and Robert McGall, 24, of 610 Breezeway Court - to the area about 9:40 p.m. Monday. When the brothers walked behind a wall, the friend heard gunshots. The two brothers ran around the wall and jumped in the truck, according to the Sheriff's Office.

The friend drove the men to the elder McGall's home, where his mother called the Sheriff's Office.

The McGalls were taken to Tampa General Hospital.

Brendan McGall was shot in the back. Robert McGall was shot twice in the leg. Neither man suffered injuries considered to be life-threatening.
