BELLE GLADE, FL (WFLX) - Three teens remain in the hospital after a late night shooting Saturday in Belle Glade. The shootings happened near Southwest 6th Street. This is the third shooting of this kind in Belle Glade in the last three months.

Southwest 6th Street, 24 hours after three teens were shot, "He was shot over here, but he was laying here." One man says one victim was his cousin, 18 year-old Robert Hardnett. He is a junior football player at Glades Central, "I came out here, my cousin was laying on the ground and I ran over and I saw the wounds in his chest."

The other victims were a 13 year old and a 15 year old. Neighbors say they heard the gun shots and saw kids shooting on bicycles, "I ran up, and I told him to remain still, just try to stay calm cousin. I'm here. I told him to just keep squeezing my hand and let me know what's going on."

Willie Hannah has spent her life on Southwest 6th Street. Only recently have the shootings become out of control. "It's a shame; they need to stop. They need to do something to stop this violence around here, it's getting outrageous."

She heard the shots around 8:45 Saturday night. She says, it's so routine, she didn't even blink, but she still wants to know, "How are they [teens] getting these guns? They have to be getting them from somewhere."

Fourteen-year-old Michael Williams has seen these guns up close. Just two years ago, he was shot in the stomach on this same street while playing football outside. He says, "Kind of makes you wonder, because that's why I got out of here, because I got shot."

Williams moved schools, and, he says, he knows the reason why crimes like the one Saturday night happen, "It starts with gangs and fights."

All victims are expected to make a full recovery. Palm Beach County Sheriff's Deputies are still investigating. At this time, they have no suspects in custody. They were able to locate shell casings and two firearms found near the scene of the crime.

There was a fourth victim, but the person was not shot, only suffered minor injuries from shattered glass.
