NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - Authorities say the third teenager who was shot on Christmas night in New Jersey’s largest city has died.

Chief assistant Essex County prosecutor Thomas Fennelly tells The Star-Ledger of Newark (https://bit.ly/1jblyoA ) 14-year-old Abdul Frazier died early Friday after three weeks in a hospital.

A 13-year-old and a 15-year-old died soon after the attack on a street in Newark’s South Ward.

A 15-year-old is charged in the shootings. His name has not been released because of his age.
