2 injured in shooting, including 7-year-old girl in Newark

NEWARK - Police are investigating after they say two people were shot early Sunday morning in Newark.

Community activists say that a man and a 7-year-old girl were shot in the incident on Astor Street.

Residents say they are fed up with the shootings, especially of children.
