One teenager was killed and three others wounded when gunmen opened fire on their moving vehicle in Newark on Saturday night, according to law enforcement officials.
Men in another vehicle fired shots and killed 17-year-old Djiba Kaba and injured three others at around 9 p.m. on Saturday, acting Essex County prosecutors said in a statement on Sunday.
Kaba had been driving the vehicle when he was shot, resulting in the vehicle crashing into unoccupied parked cars, a spokesperson from the prosecutor’s office told NJ.com.
Kaba was transported to University Hospital where he was pronounced dead at 9:41 p.m., officials said. The other victims were also taken and treated at University Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
No arrests have been made as of 9 p.m. Sunday.
The shooting is being investigated by the Essex County Prosecutor’s Office Homicide and Major Crimes Task Force, which includes detectives from the Newark Police Department.
