Three 18-year-old men have been shot on a Wilmington, Delaware street.

It happened at about 12:30 on Tuesday morning on the 200 block of West 27th Street.

One victim sustained a gunshot wound to his left buttocks; another had a graze wound to the left calf as well as some minor wounds to his head and right arm, which appeared to be the result of bullet fragments. The third victim had a wound to his left calf, which also appeared to be the result of bullet fragments.

All three victims were transported to the Christiana Hospital, and were in stable condition.

Police interviewed the victims after the shooting. The teens told the investigators that they were sitting on the steps of a home on the 200 block of W. 27th Street when they heard gunfire and realized that they had been struck.

None of the victims could provide a suspect description.

So far, police say they do not have any suspects or motives in this case.
