The shooting victim was transported to University Hospital for treatment and is reportedly in stable condition.
Fragé says police also found a car that had crashed at the scene and was lying on its side. Two victims were inside the crashed vehicle with Newark firefighters freeing one male victim from the vehicle. He was also taken to University Hospital for treatment and is reportedly in stable condition.
