Mother And Daughter Gunned Down In Car


( 4UMF NEWS ) Mother And Daughter Gunned Down In Car:

Two women, believed to be mother and daughter, are in critical condition after they were shot while inside a car in Linden, N.J., Tuesday.

Around 7:15 p.m., the two were riding in a Toyota near Middlesex and Lincoln streets when shots rang out, striking them multiple times.

Several gunshots went through the windshield. The victims, trying to escape the gunman, drove several blocks before crashing into a light pole on East Henry and Bowery streets.

The two women were taken to University Hospital in Newark.

There have been no arrests, and it is unclear if and why the women were targeted.

It appears police have at least one witness. On Middlesex, there were about a dozen evidence markers in the street as investigators combed for clues.

Our Eyewitness News crew could hear a man describing to police the sound of the gunshots and saw him re-enacting the shooting for investigators.
