Three men were shot, including one high school student, after leaving a birthday party at a Capitol Heights nightclub early Sunday morning, police reported.

Prince George's County Police say they believe the victims -- two adults and one juvenile, a student at Charles Flowers High School -- may have been targeted.

The victims were walking down Hampton Park Boulevard after leaving the Seize the Dance nightclub at 9251 Hampton Overlook when someone approached them, fired multiple gunshots and ran away, police said. All three victims survived the shooting.

As of Monday morning, no arrests had been made, said police spokesman Harry Bond. He could not offer any information about a suspect or why the victims may have been singled out.
