Three men survived a drive-by shooting while attending a family gathering in Richmond on Wednesday evening, according to police.

At about 7:15 p.m., officers responded to a ShotSpotter gunshot detection system alert in the 400 block of Marina Way South.

When they arrived, officers found three Richmond men, all about 20 years old, suffering from gunshot wounds, according to a news release from Richmond police.

The men were hanging out in a carport, having a family barbecue “while doing their best to social distance,” when someone in a light-colored vehicle drove up and opened fire before heading north on Marina Way South, police said.

One of the victims was shot in the upper torso and was taken by helicopter to a trauma center. The other two victims were shot “in their extremities” and taken to different hospitals for treatment, according to police.

All three men were in stable condition and are expected to survive.
