While helping the first victim, officers say a vehicle was seen leaving the area and firing shots near the intersection of West 5th and Hudson Street.

Shots fired from this vehicle struck a third individual. Officers then began to help this third victim. The medical condition for all three victims in this care remain unknown and their names have not yet been released.
