Wednesday evening's incident happened in Temple Hills, Md., near Washington, D.C. where a suspect or suspects inside a vehicle shot into a group of people.

"Three teens and one adult were struck and suffered what appear to be non-life-threatening injuries," Prince George's Police said in a statement. "Investigators are working to determine a motive and identify the suspect(s)."

Police spokeswoman Emily Austin said two of the teenage victims and the adults were listed in stable condition, while a third teenager was initially reported in serious condition. She later added that the teen had been upgraded to stable.

Bullets from the shooting shattered the glass of at least store in the strip mall, where one associate said they heard back-to-back shots being fired.

"It's still early in the investigation," Prince George's County Police Cpl. Erik Marsh said. "We ask if there's anyone in the community that did witness or has information on what took place if they can call Crime Solvers at 1-866-411-TIPS."
