But it’s still not clear what sparked the shooting, which occurred just after 11 p.m. Wednesday.

Authorities say a 32-year-old man who was shot in the head and in the hip remains hospitalized in critical condition, while a 31-year-old man who was shot in the leg is in stable condition. Some of the shots also hit a parked car.

Witnesses reported hearing a vehicle speed off moments after the shots were fired. Authorities were reviewing surveillance video as they hunted for the shooter.
