The shooting happened at about 7:30 p.m. Saturday outside the Hooters restaurant at Shoreline Drive and Aquarium Way. Authorities said two men and a 13-year-old boy were wounded.
Police said the shots were fired from a vehicle and one bullet went through the front door of the restaurant, and one of the victims ran inside the restaurant for help.
“From what I understand, it was a very chaotic scene,” Long Beach Police Department Chief Robert Luna said following the shooting. “Thank God we had several officers on the spot, and our officers are amazing.”READ MORE: LAX Power Project To Reduce Lane Access On Pershing Drive
Shortly after the shooting, officers stopped a vehicle believed to be involved with the shooting and arrested Rodriguez-Zamora and two minors — a 15-year-old and a 17-year-old. Police said a firearm was recovered from the vehicle.
It was not immediately clear if charges were filed against the teens.
