NEPTUNE — Authorities are investigating an incident in Neptune where two men were reportedly shot at by a passing sports utility vehicle.

Monmouth County Prosecutor Christopher J. Gramiccioni said the incident happened just before 10 p.m. on Saturday night in the area of Myrtle and Stratford avenues where the two men were walking.

The men fled after the occupants of the vehicle rolled down their windows and starting shooting.
