Los Angeles Times - - The Nation -

A man who was de­nied ac­cess to a pri­vate party at an apart­ment near Se­ton Hall Uni­ver­sity left and re­turned with a hand­gun, fa­tally shoot­ing a uni­ver­sity stu­dent, wound­ing four peo­ple, and send­ing scream­ing par­ty­go­ers rush­ing out the door and climb­ing out win­dows, au­thor­i­ties said.

Se­ton Hall stu­dent Jes­sica Moore, 19, died from her in­juries at 3:20 p.m. Satur­day, said Kather­ine Carter, a spokes­woman for the Es­sex County pros­e­cu­tor’s of­fice.

The other four vic­tims in the shoot­ing, which oc­curred just be­fore 12:20 a.m., were hos­pi­tal­ized with non­life-threat­en­ing in­juries, and one has since been re­leased, said East Orange Po­lice Sgt. An­drew Di Elmo. He says the vic­tims did not know the shooter, who fled on foot.
