BELMONT, The Bronx (WABC) -- An investigation is underway after three people were shot in the Bronx on Monday.

Police say three people were shot in front of 2164 Bathgate Avenue in the Belmont section around 8:40 p.m.

Witness Yorby Vilomar told Eyewitness News that there was a little girl's birthday party going on nearby when the shots rang out.

"There was a party going on, a little girl's birthday, a little family barbecue and then there were cars just driving by," Vilomar said. "Next thing you know, they just all hopped out of the car and went up to the track and just... everything happened from there."

The three male victims walked themselves into St. Barnabas Hospital.

All three are expected to survive, according to police.

No arrests have been made, and the investigation is ongoing.
