PHOENIX, ARIZ.--Phoenix Police are investigating a triple shooting in a West Phoenix neighborhood that left at least one of the victims fighting for his life.

The shooting took place inside a home on Mitchell Lane near 38th Avenue around 8 p.m. Wednesday.

All three victims were transported to local trauma centers, one in extremely critical condition, the other two in serious condition.

Phoenix Police Sgt. Steve Martos said three men were at the home when a group of three other men showed up, forced their way inside and began firing shots.

Martos said the shooting does not appear to be random at this time, although he did not know whether the incident was drug or gang related.

The suspects fled and have not yet been located. Police do not have descriptions of the suspects.
