MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — Police kept searching Sunday for suspects in a gas station shooting that resulted in the deaths of two teen girls in Memphis, Tennessee, authorities said.

Another teen girl and a 9-month old boy were wounded Friday night when a car pulled up to their vehicle at a gas pump and shots were fired, Memphis police said.

Killed were two girls, ages 15 and 16, police said. A 16-year-old girl and the boy were taken to a hospital with wounds that were not considered critical.

No arrests have been made. Police have not released information about suspects, and the reason for the southeast Memphis shooting has not been determined, police said.

A car involved in the shooting has since been found, police said.
