Three young men were shot outside of a party in the Mid-City area last night.

The gunfire erupted just after 11:40 pm last night near a house at 17th Street and Rimpau Boulevard, according to City News Service. One of the victims apparently tried to walk from the party to Venice Boulevard before collapsing. Two of the teenaged victims were treated and released, according to ABC News, but the third is still at Cedars-Sinai in critical condition.

Police have not arrested any suspects nor have they released a suspect description. They're not sure if the shooting was gang-related.
