One victim was shot, two others stabbed, and a fourth suffered blunt force trauma to the head. Two of the victims collapsed in front of the Food 4 Less grocery store, where they were transported by ambulance to the hospital.

Police say all four victims were in stable condition, as of Thursday night.

Police were able to quickly locate three suspects allegedly involved in the altercation. As many as five other suspects are still being sought, according to Lt. Eric Thunberg of the Chula Vista Police Dept.

Police remained on the scene throughout Thursday evening, searching for evidence. So far, a gun and a knife, which was located in some bushes, have been recovered.  

Video surveillance captured by camera posted at the trolley stop and in the parking lot wil be used to track down more suspects, according to authorities.
