BRIDGEPORT - Bridgeport police are asking for the public's help to find three men suspected in a gang-style shooting that hospitalized two cousins.

Authorities say both victims are recovering and are in stable condition after they were shot Tuesday night.

The shooting happened at around 7:15 p.m. on Washington Avenue near the corner of Highland Avenue.

Police say a 22-year-old man was walking with his 17-year-old cousin when the men approached them and began to fire.  

Investigators tell News 12 that the 22-year-old man ran into a Chinese restaurant, where he collapsed after being shot in the stomach.

The 22-year-old victim was taken to St. Vincent's Medical Center. His cousin was shot in both legs and was taken to Bridgeport Hospital by his mother.

Investigators say they are looking for any surveillance video that may have captured the crime.

Police say there are several security cameras aimed near the area of the incident, but it can take days to go through all of the videos.
