Three men were expected to survive injuries they suffered in a Sunday night shooting in the Oak Park neighborhood, police said Monday.

The shooting happened shortly after 7:10 p.m. in the 2500 block of 52nd Street, near Oak Park Drive, San Diego Police officer John Buttle said.

Four men were standing on the sidewalk talking when a vehicle with three men inside pulled up and the two groups began arguing, Buttle said. A short time later, one of the men in the vehicle opened fire, hitting three of the four men.

All three victims were taken to a hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries, the officer said. A 30-year-old man suffered five gunshot wounds to his abdomen, a 29-year-old man suffered a broken left thigh and a 29- year-old man suffered a fractured left arm.

The suspect vehicle, described as a white 4-door Lexus with chrome rims and a sunroof, fled in an unknown direction, Buttle said.

Detailed descriptions of the suspects were not immediately available.
