PASADENA – An argument between two groups of men along El Sereno Avenue in Pasadena on Tuesday led to shots fired and sent three people to the hospital with bullet wounds, Pasadena Police officials said in a statement.
Pasadena police detained three suspects in the case, officials said.
The argument, between two groups of black males, began just before 10:15 p.m. on Tuesday in the 1500 block of El Sereno Avenue. The verbal exchange escalated and shots were fired, leaving three victims injured, according to reports by the Pasadena Police Department.
Each victim suffered a single gunshot wound, and all were expected to survive, Lt. Rodney D. Wallace said.
