VALLEJO  (AP) — A 57-year-old man has died and three other people were hospitalized after a shooting in a Vallejo park Saturday night, police said.

The four victims were hit by gunfire when at least one person in a passing car started shooting at a group of people at a barbecue at Crest Ranch Park around 8:15 p.m., Vallejo police Lt. Lee Horton said Sunday.

The man died after being taken to a hospital, Horton said. The wounded victims include a 67-year-old woman, who is hospitalized in stable condition, a 17-year-old boy in critical condition and a 35-year-old man, who was shot in the arm. His condition was not known.

The names of the victims have not been released.

Investigators have not determined what prompted the shooting, or said how many shots were fired or what type of weapon was used.

The park where the shooting took place is generally peaceful, Horton said.

"We normally don't have any problems at that park," Horton said.

Geri Santiago, who lives near the park, told San Francisco television station ABC-7 that she knew at least one of the victims, including the man who died.

"I know it was a mistake, because they're not that type of crowd to be causing problems and starting trouble," Santiago said.

Police haven't released much information about the suspect except to say they are looking for a man in a dark-colored sedan.
