Police said the shooting took place in the 1200 block of East 10th Street just after 4:30 p.m.
Police said one person suffered major wounds, another suffered moderate wounds, and a third person suffered minor wounds.
Bakersfield police say ShotSpotter technology was used in response to the shooting. Friday afternoon police also said the technology was used in response to a shooting earlier Friday morning near Lake and Brown streets.

Bakersfield police said its ShotSpotter system was being tested in Bakersfield’s Metro area Thursday night.
