One person was killed and three others were injured Monday night in a pair of shootings on the same Newark street, authorities said.

Gunfire broke out just after 5 p.m. on South 8th Street, off 12th Avenue, a neighborhood of mostly two-family homes.

The three hospitalized didn’t have life-threatening wounds, police said.

There was no immediate word on a possible motive or whether authorities had anyone in custody.

The Essex County Prosecutor’s Office was investigating, assisted by Newark police.
