At least four people were shot at a New Jersey hotel where two rooms had been rented for a bachelorette party, the town's mayor and a source close to the investigation told News 4 Monday.
The mayor of Woodbridge said at least four people were shot at the Delta Hotels by Marriot around 2:30 a.m. Monday.
The source described the bachelorette party as a fairly large gathering. Just one person allegedly fired a gun, though it's not clear what sparked the firing.
Multiple police and emergency response vehicles were seen parked outside the hotel off Route 1 hours after the shooting.

One hotel guest woke up in a panic hearing gunshots pierce the quiet of her hotel room. “I stayed down and just ran for cover," she said.
Watching from her second-floor window, she saw the ambulances arrived.
"I feared for my life, I actually got down. I didn’t know where it was coming from or how many more was gonna come," she told News 4.
No fatalities have been reported but the extent of injuries was not immediately known. No details were available on the suspected shooter, including whether that individual had been taken into custody.
"The safety, security, comfort and privacy of guests, staff and visitors are of paramount importance to Delta Hotels Woodbridge. Hotel management and staff are cooperating fully with authorities as they conduct an investigation into an on-property incident that occurred on July 12, 2021," the hotel said in a statement late Monday.
The Middlesex County Prosecutor's Office has taken over the investigation.
