Police say Norfolk detectives are aware of the Facebook Live video and are currently investigating.

The graphic video shows the three men listening to music, a man in the front passenger seat holding the phone. Suddenly, the phone drops to the floor of the car as what sounds like at least 30 gunshots can be heard in the background.

"Call 911," a man can be heard saying. "We need an ambulance, there's three of us shot."

While police have not officially said the Facebook Live video was recorded at the Bainbridge Street location, a man can be heard in the video giving the emergency operator the same address.

All three victims were rushed to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital for treatment. Two of the men have life-threatening injuries and one has non-life threatening injuries, according to the Norfolk Police Department.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Crime Line at 1-888-LOCK-U-UP.
