Baby, 3 others, killed in shooting in Bayonne, NJ

Four people, including a baby, have been shot and killed in Bayonne in an apparent murder-suicide. A fifth person is being treated for non-life-threatening injuries.

Mayor Mark Smith says a man shot the adults and baby before killing himself. He says two other children were in the house when the shootings occurred at about 8 p.m. Monday but were unharmed.

Officials say the baby who died was a boy who was 1 to 1 1/2 years old.

The Star Ledger reports (http://bit.ly/vouVsC) that more than 15 shots were fired and that police believe a gun found at the house was used in the killings.

The names of the victims have not been released.
