Three teenagers were shot in the parking lot of a San Pedro In-N-Out Burger after gathering there Friday night to celebrate a high school football game.

The victims, described as males aged 15, 17, and 19, had gathered with about 500 other people after a game between San Pedro High School and Banning High School. The shooting occurred around 10:30 p.m in the parking lot the restaurant shares with a Ralphs supermarket. The scene of the shooting is about 2 miles from San Pedro High School.

The 17- and 19-year old males were described as having non-life threatening injuries, according to the LAPD Harbor Division. The 15-year old was taken to the hospital in critical condition but is expected to survive, reports KTLA.

Authorities believe the shooting was gang-related. The suspect is only described as a 17-year old Hispanic male last seeing wearing a red hoodie, according to KPCC.
