A shooting left three victims with bullet wounds – but none remained at the scene of the incident, police said.

Prosecutors did not release the names, ages or genders of the victims. One went to a home in South Toms River where police and EMTs were called, while the other two – who were determined to have been shot during the same altercation – drove themselves to Community Medical Center in Toms River for treatment.

The victim who ended up at the South Toms River home was treated at the scene before being taken to Jersey Shore University Medical Center in Neptune.
