Two NJ Christmas Day Shootings Leave 5 Dead

Thursday, December 26, 2013

Two New Jersey teens were shot and killed in Newark Wednesday, and a third teenager was critically injured. Police have not yet released the names of the victims. 

The violence comes on the heels of a Christmas morning shooting that left three dead in a fight outside an Irvington strip club. Police say a suspect opened fire after being turned away from Slick's Go Go Bar.  The club's bouncer and two employees were killed. Witnesses said a gray sedan sped away from the club just after the shootings.
