4 wounded in overnight Montclair shooting (8/6/13)

MONTCLAIR - Authorities say two of the four people wounded in an overnight shooting in Montclair had also been shot at last month.

The Essex County Prosecutor's Office says a young woman and three young men were shot around 1 a.m. on Mission Street.

Authorities say 18-year-old Naji Love, of Montclair, was the most seriously wounded. She suffered a gunshot wound to the chest and remains hospitalized in stable condition.

Two men from Montclair - 18-year-old Timear Haley and 20-year-old Terril Vaxter - and a 17-year-old suffered wounds that were not considered life-threatening. One of them was shot in the arm, one in the left buttock and the third was shot in the left leg.

Naji and Terrill had been shot at on another Montclair street on July 24.

Police say the gunman had a mask and was hiding in the bushes. Anyone with information is asked to call Montclair police at (973) 744-1234.
