Nine people, including a teenager, were injured in a shooting outside a Newark neighborhood grocery store Thursday evening, police said.
All victims are expected to survive, and acting Newark Public Safety Director Raul Malave told reporters at the scene that police are searching for a vehicle believed to be involved in the shooting.
Five people, including a 17-year-old boy, were involved in the accident and rushed to the hospital. Four other victims were taken to hospital by emergency responders, Malave said.
Officers responded to the residential neighborhood at 6:19 p.m. after an alert from the city’s ShotSpotter system that detected gunshots. Police were looking for a white Honda Pilot that had been reported stolen in Jersey City, Malave said.
It is not clear how many people were shooting or why.
