Once officers arrived they found two teens had been wounded. Reports say a 16-year-old female was found in critical condition after being shot in the face, and a 17-year-old male was shot in the leg.

Police requested additional backup due to the fact that the suspects were still on the loose.

Police believe the shooting to be gang-related. The investigation is ongoing.
