PATERSON, N.J. (AP) - A rising high school basketball player was killed and at least three other people were wounded in a drive-by shooting in Paterson.

Authorities say the shooting occurred around 8:30 p.m. Saturday in the area of Rosa Parks Boulevard and Godwin Avenue. They say the victims were standing near a liquor store when a burst of gunfire came from a vehicle that quickly fled the scene.

Killed in the shooting was 15-year-old Armoni Sexton, a top scorer and rebounder on the varsity team at the Paterson Charter School for Science for Science and Technology.

A motive for the shooting remains under investigation. There have been a spate of shootings in Paterson in recent days, but it’s not clear if this incident was related to any of the other shootings.
