NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - A teenager has been killed and three other people wounded in a shooting at a public housing complex in New Jersey.

Authorities say a 16-year-old boy was shot and killed. Another victim suffered grave injuries and the other two victims are expected to survive.

The prosecutor’s office hasn’t released the name of the boy, pending notification of his family.
