Posted: Updated:

CARLSBAD (CBS 8) -  Carlsbad Police say two young men, approximately 18 and 20 years old, along with a girlfriend of one of the men, were all shot in a drive-by shooting around 8:30 Monday night.

Lt. Matt Magro says the three victims were getting ready to take a walk in the 3400 block of Madison Street when a car described as a blue Dodge with four to five occupants inside drove up to the group.

Police say a shooter, described as a Hispanic male, got out of the vehicle, pointed a black handgun at the group and fired four to five rounds. The victims were shot in the arms and legs, and one was grazed by a bullet in the abdomen. Two were transported to the hospital by air, and one was transported by ambulance. As of 11 p.m. Monday, they were all in stable condition and expected to survive.

The shooting happened in what's called the downtown area of Carlsbad, also known as the Barrio. The neighborhood is located just west of Interstate 5, and south of Carlsbad Village Drive.

Police say there appear to have been no other witnesses. Investigators canvassed the neighborhood for any clues. Lt Magro told CBS 8 there is no reason to believe at this time that the shooting was gang related.
