Three Americans shot, wounded during Father’s day party in New Jersey


Three people have been shot and wounded during a Father’s Day party at a park in the US state of New Jersey in an incident to be the third mass open-air shooting in the country in the past two days.

At least one of those wounded is in critical condition, according to police officials.

Several shots were fired during the party at a park in Jersey City on Sunday night that was initially mistaken by the attendants for fireworks, witnesses told NBC.

Earlier on Saturday, two mass shootings took place in Detroit and in West Philadelphia.

Seven people were injured in the West Philadelphia shooting, including two kids aged 2 and 10.

In gunfire at Dexter Avenue and Webb Street in the US city of Detroit, a 20-year old man killed and at least nine others injured.

About 400 people were at a party enjoying a basketball game when the gunman opened fire, with witnesses saying they grabbed their children and ran out of the court.

Police said on Sunday that they were investigating the shootings.
