NORTH BERGEN, N.J. — At least one person is dead after several people were shot in New Jersey, authorities said Sunday.

It happened in the vicinity of 46th Street and Dell Avenue in North Bergen early Sunday.

Three men and one woman were shot, according to the prosecutor's office. One of the men was pronounced dead.

Hudson County Prosecutor’s Office Homicide Unit and North Bergen Police are investigating the incident, police said.

No arrests have been reported.

In a Facebook post, North Bergen Mayor Nicholas Sacco called the shooting "shocking and very disturbing" but "in no way reflective" of the community.

Sacco said "as long as guns are so easily available, senseless acts of violence like this will unfortunately continue to occur." He said "Our hearts go out to the victims and their families."
