In the early hours of the Fourth of July, three people, including a teenager, were shot in their backyard in San Antonio, Texas.

At around 2:30 a.m. on Thursday, officers arrived at a home in San Antonio and found a 17-year-old who was shot in the arm.

Minutes later, officers discovered two other men in their early 30s were also shot.

The three men were transported to a local hospital, with one in serious condition and two in stable condition.

Officers were able to detain four men who were believed to be connected to the shooting.

Per Newsweek:

Three people including a teenager were shot in a backyard in San Antonio, Texas, in the early hours of Thursday morning, police said.

Officers responded to a shooting at around 2:30 a.m. at a home off Steves Avenue, where police said a group of men had fired gun shots into the backyard.

After arriving at the scene, police found a 17-year-old who had been shot in the arm, and were informed that two other men in their 30s had also been hit. The men had suffered wounds to the abdomen, and one had also been hit in the shoulder and leg.

The three victims were transported to hospital, with two in a stable condition and one in a serious condition, according to local news outlet KENS 5.

Four men were subsequently detained in connection with the incident, the San Antonio Police Department told KENS 5.

Fox San Antonio reported that before the teenager and two men were shot, a group of men were seen walking around the East Side of San Antonio shooting guns.

Investigators further revealed the same group of men walked up into the backyard where the victims were staying and fired shots at them.

Authorities have not released a motive for the shootings.

As The Gateway Pundit reported on Wednesday, the FBI and DHS have warned Americans to stay vigilant as they attend Fourth of July celebrations.
