Cops are looking for a group of suspects who were involved in a fight that led to a shooting in the Bronx last weekend.

According to police, at 12:24 a.m. on July 3 a 47-year-old man was inside 1026 Castle Hill Avenue when he was approached by a group of unknown men. One of the men got into an argument with the victim, which later escalated when that same man pulled out a gun.

The suspect fired multiple times at the victim, striking him three times in the leg. The suspects then fled the scene in multiple vehicles: a white SUV, a dark-colored SUV and a three-wheeled motorized vehicle. Paramedics took the victim to NYC Health and Hospitals/Jacobi in stable condition.
