CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

Corpus Christi Police Chief Floyd Simpson said it appears a drug deal gone bad landed a 24-year old woman and two teen boys in the hospital Monday night.

All three were shot near the corner of North Alameda and Ramirez by two men who sped away in a red truck.

Kiii News Reporter Michael Gibson went Live from the Northside Manor Apartments, where one of the victims lives, with more details.

Qrashen Tipton, a 17-year old Miller High School student, is now home after being treated and released from the hospital with a gunshot wound to the leg. He and an 18-year old, along with a 24-year old woman, were near the corner of North Alameda and Ramirez when they were shot in a drive-by.

The suspects shooters, two Hispanic males, took off in a red pickup.

Police and paramedics arrived on the scene, and officers found four shell casings in the street while paramedics took the three to the hospital. Two of those victims remain in the hospital.

Tipton's mother, Elisha Thompson, is hoping police find the shooters.

"They seen the red truck," Thompson said. "The truck had already passed by and someone had seen the guy already had a gun, and so they drove around the corner and just started shooting randomly, you know, and my son was hit, and Deonte and the other lady, I don't know her name."

No one was able to get the license plate of that red pickup, but Thompson did say that her son had told her that the shooters were from Portland. That information was turned over to police, who say that the victims have not been cooperative.

Police said the drive-by was not a random shooting, but a drug deal gone wrong. They are hoping that, if someone knows who the shooters are and where they can be  located, they will let them know.
