LEMON GROVE (CNS) - Three men were shot and wounded early Sunday outside a Lemon Grove residence, sheriff's officials said.
Sheriff's deputies were called out just before 1 a.m. to an address near the intersection of Massachusetts and Central avenues on a report that a man had been shot in the stomach, according to sheriff's Sgt. Trinidad Tejeda.
About a minute later, the call was updated to reflect a second shooting victim with a gunshot wound to his leg was in the driveway of the residence at 3105 Massachusetts Ave., Tejeda said. Several other callers reported seeing several males running from the scene, Tejeda said.
Deputies arrived and found shell casings in the front of the residence's driveway, Tejeda said.
The two shooting victims were taken to a hospital to be treated for wounds not believed to be life-threatening, Tejeda said.
About 45 minutes after the initial emergency call was placed, a third shooting victim was found in the side yard near the driveway. He was partially under the front of a truck and was out of sight, Tejeda said.
He was taken to a hospital to be treated for a non-life-threatening gunshot wound to his left leg, Tejeda said.
Deputies initially though a vehicle that crashed into a fire hydrant in the vicinity of Massachusetts Avenue and La Corta Street shortly after the first two victims were taken to a hospital was linked to the shooting, but it was unrelated, Tejeda said.
