NEWARK, N.J. » New Jersey authorities say one person is dead and three others are wounded after gunfire broke out following an annual Mother’s Day motorcycle blessing in Newark.

Media outlets report that gunfire erupted Sunday evening in the city’s South Ward, the scene of the Blessing of the Bikes, an event sponsored by the Newark Knights motorcycle club to mark the beginning of the riding season.

Essex County Assistant Prosecutor Thomas S. Fennelly says one person died at a hospital after the 7:45 p.m. shooting at a street intersection near the bike club house and three others were being treated for apparently non-life-threatening injuries. The blessing was scheduled to end at 6 p.m.

Neither Fennelly nor police released further details on the victims or circumstances surrounding the shooting.
