Police: 3 wounded in Asbury Park shootings

Saturday, January 28, 2012

Three men have been wounded in a shooting on the Jersey Shore, but their injuries are not considered life-threatening.

Asbury Park police say they haven't determined a motive for the shootings, which occurred just before midnight Friday in a residential area on Bangs Avenue. But Monmouth County prosecutors say it appears that the three men were targeted by an unknown shooter who remained at large Saturday afternoon.

Authorities did not disclose specific details about the injuries suffered by the men. They were identified only as 18-year-old from Neptune; a 19-year-old from Asbury Park and a 21-year-old from Ocean Grove.

Officials say two of the men suffered "serious wounds" and remained hospitalized Saturday afternoon. But the other was treated at the hospital for minor injuries and released.
