    Default 2 Dead,4 Injured,5 Drive-By Shootings, In 35Mins in Newark,NJ!!!

    Four people were shot, two fatally, in five drive-by shootings that took place during a 45-minute wave of violence this afternoon in Newark, police said.

    Four people shot in Newark drive-by shooting



    The shootings began at about 2:15 p.m. at the Seth Boyden housing project, according to Police Director Garry McCarthy, who said the shots came from a white Infiniti sport utility vehicle with two or three males inside. The gunfire did not hit anyone, he said.

    Twenty minutes later, at 2:35 p.m. Burroughs was killed as he walked along Ridgewood Avenue after leaving his mother's home to visit a friend. The shots came from the same vehicle, McCarthy said.

    Five minutes later, police received reports of more shots being fired at Clinton and Chadwick avenues. In that incident, a 27-year-old man was shot in the elbow. Police recovered a number of shell casings at the scene.

    Then, at 2:55 p.m., Evans, whose children three children are 2, 5 and 6, was shot and killed at 174 Boyd Ave., not far from the 18th Avenue Elementary School.

    Police "picked up on the car," according to McCarthy, not long after Evans was killed and chased the Infiniti for eight minutes. The pursuit continued onto Route 78, where police lost it.

    "The streets are out of control," said former City Councilman Charles Bell, who once represented the Central Ward, where several of the shootings occurred. "It's a mix of guns and the tough economy. When the country sneezes, we catch hell in our community.

    During the chase, at 3:04 p.m., police received a 911 call that a 16-year-old boy had been shot on Irvine Turner Boulevard. Taheesha Greene, 37, identified the boy as her son, Hakir, a junior at Central High School. He was listed in critical condition tonight after undergoing surgery, hospital spokesman Jerry Carey said.

    Police believe in a couple of the incidents there may have been a connection to drugs, but they are still investigating...

    The city registered 106 homicides in 2007, leading the Newark Teachers Union to sponsor several billboards imploring: "HELP WANTED: Stop The Killings In Newark Now!"

    However, with 45 murders as of Oct. 5, the 2008 homicide rate is on pace to near the city's 10-year low of 59 homicides, recorded in 200
