Two adults and a teenage boy were wounded Saturday evening in a shooting near the Aquarium of the Pacific in downtown Long Beach.

The shooting occurred about 7:30 p.m. outside the Hooter’s restaurant near Chestnut Place and Shoreline Drive, according to Long Beach Police Chief Robert Luna.

Two men and a 13-year-old boy were wounded, Luna told reporters at the scene. One victim was taken to a hospital in critical condition, but Luna did not specify which.

Witnesses at the scene said the shots were fired from a vehicle.

Luna said three persons of interest were detained for questioning.

Whether the shooting was gang related was “on the table,” Luna said.
