Two teens were shot in a Cal State L.A. parking lot on Sunday night after taunting people passing by.

The 14-year-old and 18-year-old males were driving in a van around campus "challenging" people, a spokesman for the LAPD Hollenbeck Division told NBC Los Angeles.

The teens parked their car shortly after 9 p.m. at State University Drive and Campus Road and were both shot by a suspect, according to ABC 7.

“Somebody took offense to what they were saying and shot at them,” LAPD Lt. Peter Gamino told the L.A. Times.

Police are still searching for the suspect, and they believe the shooting was gang-related.
