    Child among 3 hurt after shots fired in Elizabeth, NJ

    ELIZABETH, New Jersey (WABC) — Police are investigating after one man was killed and two others were injured, including a young child, in a shooting in Elizabeth, New Jersey Monday night, according to officials.

    The shooting happened around 8:30 p.m. outside an apartment complex located at 620 Salem Avenue.

    There were three victims included a young child, a woman in her 20s and a 28-year-old man, according to the City of Elizabeth’s Public Information Officer.

    The 28-year-old victim was killed while the woman and child both suffered non-life threatening injuries.

    Officials say all three victims were in the same vehicle that was struck.

    There’s no word yet on what led up to the shooting.

    According to witnesses, a black sedan fled the scene.

    Elizabeth resident Darren Small says the area, Salem Avenue in particular, has become a hotbed for crime, specifically drug activity.

    “Very quiet working-class area. Crime came in last few years and there’s nothing being done about it,” Small said.

    The shooting is under investigation.
