According to police, three people were sitting in a car when they were shot by someone inside another vehicle. The victims then drove to the home of a relative on Carolina Street where they called for help, police said.

Authorities say the wounded include two teenagers and an adult, a man possibly in his late 20s. Police do not know exactly where the shooting happened and the motive remains unclear.

Police said the suspect fled after the shooting. They have not been found.

SAPD said the victims were taken by EMS to University Hospital and Brooke Army Medical Center with non-life-threatening gunshot wounds. One, however, was hit in the neck, police said.
