NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - One man was killed and three other people were wounded in a shooting in Newark.

But it’s not clear what sparked the shootings, which occurred around 2 p.m. Wednesday in the 200 block of Clinton Place in the city’s South Ward.

Essex County prosecutors say 22-year-old city resident James Elam was killed. The three wounded victims were being treated at hospitals, but their names and further details on their conditions were not disclosed.

Further details on the shooting have not been disclosed, including how many shooters may have been involved or what type of weapon was used. It’s being investigated by city police and the prosecutor’s office.

According to television reports, a nearby school was locked down after the shooting for about an hour.
