NEWARK - Three people were shot at A & R Lounge in Newark early Sunday morning, according to officials.

The shooting happened around 2 a.m. outside the bar on South 10th Street.

A DJ working at the time of the shooting says he heard several shots fired outside. He says people began to run for cover when the bullets began ricocheting inside the bar.

Prosecutors say two women, ages 34 and 45, and a 41-year-old man who were inside the bar were struck after the suspect opened fire outside.

Officials say all three were hospitalized and two of the victims have since been released.
