Violence in Newark leaves 1 dead, others in hospital

A man in his 20s is dead and several more are in the hospital after at least three separate incidents in Newark over the weekend.

Neighbors say a late-night party ended in bloodshed, with several in the hospital with gunshot and stab wounds. Witnesses say young people were in the street and tried to break down doors to get inside once shooting broke out.

Three hours later, in broad daylight, another shooting occurred. One young man was seen laying on the ground, but was moving. He is in fair condition.

The death that resulted from the weekend incidents marks the 82nd homicide in Newark this year.

Police have not determined whether any of the incidents are related.
