Nine people were hospitalized after being shot Thursday evening in Newark, the authorities said.
All of the victims — eight adults and one juvenile — were in stable condition at two Newark hospitals, the acting Newark public safety director, Raul Malave, said in a statement.
He said the police responded to the shooting, in the 200 block of Clinton Place, a residential area in the Weequahic section of Newark, at 6:19 p.m. The authorities learned of the attack through the ShotSpotter system, a technology that detects gunfire and alerts law enforcement.
Mr. Malave did not disclose information about a motive for the attack or the number of assailants.
