Police searching for gunman after triple shooting

Reporter: Stephanie Gailhard

Three shooting victims are in the hospital after a gunman opened fire in Lake Worth Monday night.

Lake Worth Police and the Palm Beach County Violent Crimes Task Force investigated multiple scenes in this crime.

It happened on 8th Avenue South and Dixie Highway at the Martinique Hotel around 11:45 Monday night.

Investigators tell Fox 29 the three victims were standing in the street when four men dressed all in black walked up to them. An argument then broke out, and it turned violent. One of the men in the group then shot at all three victims. All of them were hit in the legs.

Here are the victims names: Martin Sanchez, Mario Frantisto and Robert Rodriguez. One victim is at Delray Medical Center. The other two are at JFK Medical Center. All of them are recovering, and they will be ok.

Investigators say the suspects took off in a white car with tinted windows. They're trying to track them down.

The Violent Crimes Task Force is now heading up the investigation. They are still not sure if it is gang related.

If you have any information, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-458-TIPS.
