Moses was shot in the left leg and foot, and his son was shot in the left shoulder.

A third victim, 57-year-old Robin Rockford, was grazed in his right shin as he was getting out of a vehicle.

The three were standing in front of the location when suspects fired multiple round from a dark-colored sedan, which fled in an unknown direction.
