TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - Three men were shot on Tucson's west side on Tuesday, Dec. 20, police said.

According to Tucson police Sgt. Kim Bay, the shootings began inside a home in the 1300 block of West El Rio Drive, near West Speedway Boulevard and I-10, then spilled out into the front yard and street.

Officers responding to the scene found the first victim in the front of the El Rio Drive house. The second victim was discovered the next street over in the 1500 block of North Hualpai Road, while a third was dropped off at a hospital.

All are being treated at the hospital - one with life threatening and two with non-life threatening injuries.

Police believe four people, possible suspects, left the area in a vehicle, but do not have descriptions.

The shootings do not appear to be random, and could be drug-related according to TPD officials.

Other homes were hit by gunfire, but no one inside those houses were hit or hurt, according to the TPD.
