The 20-year-old victim was taken in critical condition to a hospital. The teens were taken to the hospital in serious condition. The conditions of all of the victims later improved to stable.

The shooting happened at 8:50 p.m. near Thomas Square Park across the street from Blaisdell Concert Hall, one of the city's biggest music and entertainment venues.

Officers arrested the suspect nearby about 30 minutes later.
