One man is in critical condition after suspects opened fire on a group of bicyclists in South Los Angeles last night. The shooting happened at around 11:15 p.m. near the intersection of East 43rd Street and Long Beach Avenue, according to ABC 7.

One man is in the hospital and a video of the crime scene shows bikes strewn everywhere, but details about the shooting are very sketchy at this point. It's not clear how old the victims were — the Los Angeles Times said they're in their late 20's and KTLA said they're in their early 20's. The Times reports that the police are seeking four suspects.

The suspects fled the scene, and police said it's not clear whether the shooting is gang-related. Anyone with information was asked to contact the Los Angeles Police Department's Newton Division at (323) 846-6547.
