Three people were shot overnight near the Village Commons shopping center in West Palm Beach.

The triple shooting occurred around 12:25 a.m. Monday in the 800 block of Village Blvd. in an alley behind the plaza.

West Palm Beach Sgt. David Lefont said all three victims were treated at local hospitals and are expected to survive their injuries.

Lefont said several men were involved in a verbal dispute, which eventually led to the shooting. 

Police said they are not looking for a shooter, so it is unclear if one of the victims was the gunman. 

There was also a car smashed into a wall at the scene. Police said the case is still an active investigation.
