Police said the three men confronted the teenagers in their vehicle and one threw a bottle at the windshield.

When the teens attempted to drive away from the scene, one of the men pulled out a gun and fired upon the vehicle, according to KCTV.

A 16-year-old male was shot and suffered injuries that were not considered life-threatening. A teenage girl, whose age was not reported, suffered minor injuries from a shattered car window.

Police were searching Sunday for the three suspects, who were believed to be driving an olive green SUV. A four-door car driven by a woman was also involved in the incident, KCTV reported.
