It happened around 2 a.m. on March 22 at the intersection of West Pomona and Cherokee streets.

Police say the victims, a 21-year-old male, and an 18-year-old female, were sitting inside their parked vehicle when two unknown black males exited a pickup truck and began shooting at them.

After firing more than 20 shots the males fled the scene in the pickup truck.

The victims sustained multiple gunshot wounds and were transported to the hospital by responding officers.

The suspects were operating a dark-colored four-door pickup truck, possibly a Nissan Frontier, with tinted windows and a tonneau cover covering the truck's bed.

The video surveillance shows the offenders' vehicle fleeing the scene.

Suspect #1 is described as a black male, skinny build, 5'10", mid 20 years-of-age, wearing a black hooded sweatshirt under a red puffy jacket with white patches.

Suspect #2 is described as a black male, heavy build, 5'8", mid 20 years-of-age, beard, and wearing a black jacket.
