NEWARK, N.J. (AP) --  Newark officials say two teenagers have been shot and killed and a third is in critical condition in the northern New Jersey city.

Acting Essex County Prosecutor Carolyn A. Murray and Newark Police Director Samuel A. DeMaio say a 13-year-old girl and a 14-year-old boy were fatally shot Christmas night. Both were pronounced dead at a local hospital. They say a third young victim has been hospitalized in critical but stable condition.

The names of the victims have not been released.

The Star-Ledger newspaper reports that the shootings happened around 10 p.m. Wednesday in a neighborhood not far from Interstate 78 and Irvington, a neighboring city.

The shootings come after three men were fatally shot and two other men were wounded early Christmas morning at an Irvington strip club.
