Police are searching for a gunman who shot three men in a vehicle in south Phoenix early Thursday morning. 

Phoenix Fire Department officials say the call was dispatched around 1:15 a.m. in the area of 17th Avenue and Pima Street, just south of Buckeye Road. 

Information from the scene suggests that a person in a white pickup truck fired shots at a group of men who were standing outside another car, hitting three out of four people.

Police are not releasing the victims' names but say they're African American men ages 41, 51 and 60. They suffered non-life threatening injuries during the incident. 

The pickup truck fled the area immediately after the shooting, officials said. There is no word yet on what led to the shooting and police are still looking for the shooter. 

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call police or Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS. Callers may remain anonymous and receive up to a $1,000 reward for information leading to an arrest.
