East Orange

Police in East Orange are on the search for suspects wanted for a shooting that caused injuries in a section of the city Monday evening.

In the city's third shots fired incident in less than a week, with at least four confirmed victims, shooters arrived in a residential neighborhood on Norwood Street and began to unload bullets in the direction of several males.

When police arrived at the scene, officers found a victim suffering gunshot injuries at that location.

The unidentified victim was rushed to University Hospital, where doctors treated non-life threatening injuries.

Residents in the area said they have complained of a plethora of drug sales and distribution with little to no change. East Orange City officials have not responded to requests for public information at this time.

Early Sunday morning, gunmen blasted off multiple rounds of gunfire in a residential community on Shepard Avenue that struck and injured three victims. Click **[HERE](** for that story.
