DeMaio told The Star-Ledger the three victims were juveniles, but had no details on their condition.
The shooting comes less than 24 hours after three people were gunned down at a go-go bar in Irvington, only a few blocks from tonight’s shooting in Newark.
Pierre Clervoyant Jr., 34, of Elizabeth, the manager and son of the owner of Slick’s Go-Go Bar, along with Woodley Daniel, 32, of Hillside, a bouncer at the bar, were both pronounced dead at University Hospital in Newark shortly after 1 a.m. this morning, along with a third victim, Mushir Cureton, 27, of Newark.
