A Christmas Day shooting has left two teenagers dead and another in critical condition in the northern New Jersey city of Newark.
According to the Huffington Post, the shooting occurred around 10 p.m. Wednesday in a neighborhood not far from Interstate 78 and Irvington, a neighboring city.
Acting Essex County Prosecutor Carolyn A. Murray and Newark Police Director Samuel A. DeMaio say a 13-year-old girl and a 14-year-old boy were fatally shot Christmas night. Both were pronounced dead at a local hospital. They say a third young victim has been hospitalized in critical but stable condition.
The victims’ names have not been released. Details surrounding the shooting were not immediately available.
But the late night shooting wasn’t the only act of violence on the Christmas holiday.
The shootings come after three men were fatally shot and two other men were wounded early Christmas morning at an Irvington strip club.
