A 23-year-old man was shot in the head and killed. Three others were seriously injured.

Police and medics arrived almost immediately, and the three injured victims were rushed to the hospital. One was hit in the abdomen, another in the arm and abdomen, and the third in the leg. There was no immediate word on their conditions.

Police said the victims did not know the suspects.
