17-year old boy injured in Livermore, California in gang shooting

A 17-year old boy and a 20-year old man were injured in a gang-related shooting in Livermore, California.

From an article:

Officers arrived and discovered a Livermore man -- who had been beaten in his face and shot in his torso -- in front of a business in the 1500 block of Olivina Avenue, Goard said. 
Officers also found a 17-year-old male who had been shot in the leg, police said. 
Witnesses told police that three men beat and shot the adult victim, then shot the Livermore teen in the leg. 
Both victims were transported to a hospital. The adult victim underwent emergency surgery and is in critical condition, police said. The teenage boy was treated for injuries not considered life-threatening and was released. 
Investigators believe the shooting was gang-related, Goard said. 
Police did not provide a detailed description of the suspects, describing them as three Latino men, about 20 years old and wearing dark clothing. No arrests have been made.
