NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — Authorities say a shooting in New Jersey’s largest city has left one person dead and three others injured.

The gunfire in Newark erupted shortly after 5 p.m. Monday. But it wasn’t immediately clear what sparked the shooting or how many shooters may have been involved.

The names of the four shooting victims have not been disclosed. Authorities say the three wounded people were being treated at hospitals for injuries that are not considered life-threatening.

The Essex County Prosecutor’s Office is leading the investigation.
