EAST VILLAGE — Police released video of two men wanted in connection with a fatal shooting that occurred outside a club on a busy stretch of Second Avenue.

The victim, Devin Thompson, 37, of Kips Bay, was shot twice at the corner of East Fifth Street about 4 a.m. on Sun., Aug. 22, police said.

The man remained in critical condition at Bellevue hospital until dying from his wounds on Monday, NYPD sources said.

The incident occurred near the popular nightclub Sin Sin/Leopard Lounge, a location that police have been called to three times over the past year following reports of drug use and prostitution, sources said.

The victim and two suspects had been inside the club before the shooting occurred, but it is unknown whether the men knew each another prior to the incident, police added.

Anyone with information about the attack or the suspect is asked to call CrimeStoppers at 800-577-Tips or text tips to CRIMES and enter TIP577.
