EGG HARBOR TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) - The Latest on a shootout on a New Jersey highway (all times local):

8 p.m.

Authorities say they believe that the people in two cars involved in a highway shootout in New Jersey knew each other and it was not a random act.

State police Capt. Stephen Jones said that police have recovered a number of weapons after the shooting Monday afternoon that left one man dead and four others hurt.

Police say they received reports of a shooting on the Atlantic City Expressway on Monday afternoon, followed by calls for medical assistance about 5 miles away on the Garden State Parkway and at a convenience store 2 miles away.

Jones says that police are looking for a third vehicle that witnesses say may be connected to the incident.

Portions of the expressway have been closed while police investigate.
