Three people are hospitalized after a shooting in west Phoenix and police are on the hunt for suspects in the incident.

The Phoenix Fire Department responded to the area of Indian School Road and 71st Avenue around 10:30 p.m. Wednesday after receiving reports about a shooting. 

When fire crews arrived at the scene, they discovered three people with gunshot wounds, a Phoenix Fire spokesman said. 

Police told ABC15 crews on scene that suspects arrived at an apartment, and an argument began before shots were fired through the door. Two women, ages 27 and 52, and a man, age 31, were hit by gunfire. One of the victims has life-threatening injuries. 

Police say one suspect was found hiding in a nearby apartment and was detained. Two others are still on the loose -- they're described as a white man and black woman, both between 20 and 30 years old.
