Police later located another man with a gunshot wound in the apartment complex. He too was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment.

Carlsbad detectives were on the scene Saturday investigating the shooting. They believe the three knew each other and the shooting was not a random act.

Police said one person is in custody but did not say whether that person was one of the three who were shot. Investigators don't believe there are any outstanding suspects.
