A 4-year-old boy and two men were wounded in a shooting last night in Northwest Pasadena.

The gunshots were fired around 8:50 pm from outside a building and hit the men and child inside, according to City News Service. The 4-year-old boy was the most seriously hurt of the victims although he is expected to survive. The other two victims were a 55-year-old man and a 32-year-old man.

The boy was shot in the torso, and he was rushed to a hospital before paramedics arrived, according to the Pasadena Star-News. The older man was shot in the arm, the younger man was grazed by a bullet and both were transported to the hospital by ambulance.

No one has been taken into custody for the shootings, but today police are looking for three men between the ages of 18 and 20. One was wearing a white T-shirt with black shorts and has a shaved head. Another suspect was wearing a black shirt and baggy jeans. The last suspect was wearing the same thing with dark shoes. Police told NBC Los Angeles the suspects were Hispanic.

It's not clear what prompted the shooting. Police told NBC, "This appears right now to be random."

But a teenage boy was wounded in a shooting Wednesday on the same block, the Pasadena Star-News reported.
