Three men were rushed to the hospital following a shooting in Van Nuys on Saturday night, as police now scour the area for the shooter, officials said. The violent incident played out around 9:45 p.m. on the 14700 block of Delano Street, where the victims were caught in a sudden barrage of bullets.

The Los Angeles Police Department arrived at the scene shortly after the gunfire ceased, discovering the wounded trio with varying ages: one man about 30, another near 50, and the third's age remains a mystery. According to CBS Los Angeles, a perimeter was quickly established as law enforcement began their investigation into the nighttime chaos. No details regarding a motive, or a suspect were immediately available.

Hospital officials later reported that all three victims are in stable condition, offering a glimmer of hope amidst the brutality of the night's events. The area surrounding Delano Street transformed into a muddled crime scene with squad cars and yellow tape marking the boundaries of law's territory.

As of now, authorities have not identified a suspect and the search continues, the relationships between the victims and the assailant, if any, are unknown. "The circumstances that led to the shooting and whether the victims knew the shooter remained under investigation," reported ABC7. This story is still unfolding, and additional information will be disclosed as it becomes available.
