Irvington Township Police are investigating shots fired incident that injured children sitting in a vehicle with their mother in a section of the Township Saturday. 

RLS Media first brought information to its exclusive members after gunfire erupted in the vicinity of 176 Eastern Parkway just before 11:15 p.m. 

According to police, when officers arrived at the scene, they found two juveniles, ages 7 and 10, suffering non-life-threatening wounds to their legs as a result of a drive-by shooting.  

RLS Media learned that the victims were sitting in a car with their mother at the time of the incident. The mother did not suffer any injuries. 

Prior to the incident, Irvington Police said the mother reported hearing gunshots after a dark-colored vehicle with tinted windows drove past.

At some point during the investigation, police said the mother of the victims became uncooperative and declined to give the detectives a statement regarding this incident.

Residents in the area told RLS Media that they had noticed stepped-up patrol and police enforcement in the neighborhood and were surprised to see police activity in the community on Saturday. 

Irvington Township Police said the investigation is still ongoing.

Anyone with information regarding this incident should contact the Irvington Police Department Detective Division at 973-399-6601
