An occupant in a vehicle shot and critically wounded two men at a Westminster home, a police sergeant said Saturday.

“We know at this point that the suspect fired multiple shots from an unknown type of vehicle. The victims had just arrived home when the shooting occurred,” Westminster Police Sgt. Eddie Esqueda said. “The motive for the shooting is unclear at this time.”

Officers dispatched at about 10:25 p.m. Friday to the 15800 block of Maybrook Street found a 19-year-old man suffering from a gunshot wound to the head and a 20-year-old man with a gunshot wound to the abdomen, Esqueda said. Paramedics rushed both men to UC Medical Center in Irvine, where they were in critical condition.

Westminster Police detectives asked anyone with information regarding the shooting to call them at (714) 548-3772.
