Authorities believe a drive-by shooting that injured two people early this morning in Fremont may have been gang-related, a police detective said.

Officers responded to reports of shots fired in the area of Central Avenue and Joseph Street, near a 7-Eleven store, at about 12:40 a.m., Fremont police Detective Bill Veteran said.

The victims were located across the street from the 7-Eleven, near an apartment complex at 4250 Central Ave., Veteran said. One victim had suffered a gunshot wound to his abdomen and the other had been shot in the arm.

Both victims were taken to local trauma centers to be treated for injuries that did not appear to be life-threatening, Veteran said.

Police are investigating the whereabouts of the suspects, who fled in a green, early 1990s Ford Bronco, Veteran said.

Everyone involved in the shooting is believed to have gang ties, Veteran said.
