PATERSON, N.J. (AP) - Authorities say a man and a woman were shot and killed and two other people injured while sitting in a sport utility vehicle in New Jersey.

The Passaic County prosecutor’s office said Monday that the four were in an SUV in Paterson at about 11:15 p.m. Sunday when someone opened fire. The driver attempted to flee before the SUV came to a stop.

Prosecutors say officers found a 48-year-old man and a 33-year-old woman dead. A 32-year-old woman was critically injured and a 30-year-old man had injuries not considered life-threatening. All are Paterson residents.

The names of the victims haven’t been released. Other information about the shooting hasn’t been released and no arrests have been announced.

Prosecutors say there were three other shootings in Paterson Friday night and early Saturday.
