NEWARK, N.J. - Police are trying to determine a motive in the shooting of four young people last night in a Newark, New Jersey, school parking lot. Three died. Another is hospitalized in fair condition.
A spokesman for the Essex County Prosecutor's office says the victims were shot in the head at close range after they were lined up against a back wall near a set of bleachers.
All four are from the Newark area. Three of the four had student identification from Delaware State University. Spokesman Paul Loriquet says none of the four had previous criminal records and, as he put it, "All four were good kids."
