    Four people were shot outside a public housing complex in Newark Tuesday night, according to police.

    The shooting happened in a driveway of the Betty Shabazz housing complex at the corner of Irvine Turner Boulevard and West Kinney Street in Newark, police said.

    The victims sustained non-life threatening injuries, police said.

    A senior official said shell casings have been recovered but declined to discuss the nature of the shooting. 

    Shootings in New Jersey's largest city have spiked this year, The Wall Street Journal noted last month. Mayor Ras Baraka has acknowledged the city is struggling to reduce gun crime with a smaller police force and fewer resources.
