VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (AP) — Three people were hospitalized after being shot near an oceanfront area in Virginia over the weekend, according to police.

Virginia Beach officers were responding to the sound of gunfire at a street near the Atlantic Ocean just before 1:30 a.m. Sunday when they found someone suffering from a gunshot wound, authorities said.

Police later received reports that two other people had also been shot nearby, according to the department. The three victims were taken to a hospital with wounds that were not considered life-threatening, police said.

Authorities did not comment further on the circumstances leading to the shooting or identify the victims.
