    Has this been posted?

    NEWARK, N.J. — Four young people were shot in the head at close range in a school parking lot, killing all but one, authorities said Sunday.
    The victims were shot overnight after they were lined up against a back wall near a set of bleachers at the K-8 Mount Vernon School, prosecutor's office spokesman Paul Loriquet said...

    What a terrible crime. The article says the victims were all good kids and some things were stolen.

    This is scary. Think of all the good kids who are just that--GOOD, but some how get mixed up with the wrong crowd or simply get mixed up with 1 bad apple. Shot in the head no less. What a terrible crime.

    NEWARK, Aug. 5 — The authorities were struggling to explain one of Newark’s most chilling slaughters in recent memory after three young friends were lined up against a schoolyard wall and shot dead late Saturday. A fourth person survived a gunshot.





    Terrance Aeriel, 18, a student at Delaware State University.

    The New York Times




    “This appears to have been an execution-style type of murder,” Paul M. Loriquet, a spokesman for the Essex County prosecutor, Paula T. Dow, said on Sunday.
    Investigators had no suspects and seemed to have few clues about what unfolded at the schoolyard, which is near the tip of Ivy Hill Park in a neighborhood of tree-hemmed streets speckled with modest homes and brick high-rises.

    That is awful. I wonder what the motivation for this was? It seems like killing/attempting to kill four people is a bit extreme if the shooter just wanted to steal a few things.

    Local word is it was a gang initiation--"Spanish" gang--although I don't know about that.

    The heat is really on Newark Mayor Cory Booker these days as the murder rate continues to increases, which I think is pretty unfair. Newark was ruled by corruption for so long that I think it is going to take him a while to get a handle on the corruption and violence.

    What a horrible tragedy.

    We need to get the National Guard back home and do whatever else we can do to concentrate on the violence that is going on right here in our cities, in our country.

    We could clean this up if those in office cared about the people who have to live in these war-zone cities.

    It's going to take an all out concentrated effort and it should be done NOW. It's been ignored too long because quite frankly not many care about the people who this is directly affecting.

    These three young lives matter as much as anyone else's does.

    Identifying someone doesn't count?

    ...But the Essex County prosecutor’s office, saying there was not enough evidence, has declined to authorize an arrest warrant for the man...
