A shooting in Fordham resulted in three people being transported to the hospital Friday night, according to authorities.

Police say they received a call around 7:45 p.m. They say it happened on Ryer Avenue, and that two men and a woman were shot.

New 12 spoke with a bodega employee who says she heard eight to 10 gunshots.

A 40-year-old woman was shot in the rear end, an 18-year-old man was shot in the left leg and a 24-year-old man was shot in the back, police say.

Police say they are looking for two suspects. They say one suspect was wearing a black Adidas sweatshirt and a gray or silver fanny pack. The second suspect was wearing a gray hoodie, blue jeans, blue and white sneakers and fled eastbound on 183rd Street.

Authorities say the victims were rushed to St. Barnabas Hospital. They say the victims are expected to be OK.
