Police are investigating a shooting that left three teenagers between the ages of 16-19 injured in Berkeley.



Officers say they were sitting in a car and witnesses had seen men gathered around the car before the shooting happened.

It was tough to see but officers say if there are any witnesses out there who haven't come forward, they would like to talk to them.

"It's kind of a dark street. We did get multiple calls but we don't know how many people may have actually seen it. So we are hoping that if somebody hasn't talked to us yet, that may have seen or heard this, to definitely please call the police department so we can find out exactly what did happen," Berkeley Police Ofc. Jennifer Coats said.

This happened at Parker Street and San Pablo Avenue just after 7:30 p.m.

Police haven't said the motive but don't think it was a random attack.

No arrests have been made.
