    7 People Shot, 3 Fatally, on Violent Day in Newark
    By ANAHAD O’CONNOR and KAREEM FAHIM
    Seven people were shot, three of them fatally, in an explosion of violence in Newark on Thursday evening. The bloodshed was part of a spate of shootings and violent carjackings — including the carjacking of a state official — in the city over the last month.

    The latest eruption began about 4:30 p.m. in the city’s South Ward. A gunman approached a group of five young men who had congregated by a bail bonds office near the corner of Avon Avenue and South 12th Street and opened fire, then fled, the authorities said. Two of them, both 16, were taken to University Hospital and pronounced dead. The others were treated there for injuries that did not appear to be life-threatening.

    The dead were identified as Allen Best and Jarid Smith, both of whom lived in Newark, said Thomas F. Fennelly, chief assistant prosecutor in the Essex County prosecutor’s office and the director of the homicide unit. Investigators said it was unclear what prompted the gunman to open fire.

    Ninety minutes later, as the police were still combing the scene, a second, apparently unrelated shooting occurred a few blocks away, at Court and Broome Streets in the city’s Central Ward neighborhood, Mr. Fennelly said. In that case, a gunman walked up to two men sitting in a car and started shooting, killing one of them, Rodney Shacor, 30, of Newark, officials said. The other man was taken to University Hospital with what appeared to be non-life-threatening injuries, the authorities said.

    Late last month, the city laid off 163 police officers, about 13 percent of the force. Many residents feared the result might be a return to the rampant crime and bloodshed that dogged Newark for years.

    bumped as this is the first day of Kwanzaa, and we seem to be as far from unity as were were a year ago, still with fratricide all over the nation and the continent
