SOUNDVIEW, The Bronx (WABC) -- The NYPD is searching for two suspects they believe were responsible for the Thursday shooting outside a restaurant in the Bronx that left four people shot.

Officials say gunfire broke out at around 2:15 a.m. near the Isla Café on Westchester Avenue after a fight inside the restaurant.

Two men reportedly discharged several rounds and struck four victims.

A 37-year-old woman was shot in the leg, a 30-year-old woman was grazed in the shoulder and a 44-year-old woman was grazed in the head.

All were being treated at Jacobi Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries.

The fourth victim, a 28-year-old male, suffered a gunshot wound to the leg, and is also expected to be okay.

Police say the suspects got away in a dark colored four door sedan last seen heading northbound on Leland Avenue.
