A teen was killed and three others were injured in a Newark shooting Saturday, authorities said.

A gunman in a car opened fire on Dijba Kaba, 17, and the three other teens, who were also in a car, on the 900 block of Bergen Street around 9 p.m., Acting Essex County Prosecutor Theodore N. Stephens, II, and Newark Public Safety Director Brian O’Hara said.

Kaba and the three others -- a male and two females -- were rushed to University Hospital, where Kaba was pronounced dead at 9:41 p.m., Stephens and O'Hara said.

No arrests had been made as of Sunday. The investigation was active and ongoing.
