June 27, 2010 |  4:47 pm

Three men were wounded early Sunday in Montebello in what police believe was a gang-related shooting.

The men, ages 20, 26 and 45, were changing a car tire in the 3300 block of West Beverly Boulevard around 1:20 a.m. when a silver-colored vehicle carrying at least two men approached, Montebello Police Lt. Brad Keller said. Shots were fired from inside the vehicle, hitting all three men.

Two of the victims were taken to local hospitals, while the third was treated at the scene by paramedics and released. None of the injuries were considered life-threatening.

The shooters are believed to be gang members, but the victims appeared to have no gang affiliation, Keller said.

An investigation is ongoing. No other information was given.
