Holmes was the youngest and most seriously injured of the 12 people rushed to hospital on Saturday, according to FOX29.
Two other victims, a 30-year-old man and a 25-year-old woman, were found dead at the scene, the New Jersey State Police said in a Facebook statement on Sunday. Holmes has not been identified at the time, but police said “one of the 12 confirmed victims has been seriously injured and is in critical condition.”
So far, two people have been arrested in connection with the shooting, but none have been identified by police as suspected attackers, according to the Attorney General.
The shooting took place around 11:50 p.m. Local time at a residence on East Commerce Street in Fairfield Township.
Melissa Helmbrecht, an employee of Hopeloft, a local advocacy group for youth at risk, told NBC10 that several members of the group were celebrating when the shooting took place.
“There were hundreds of people, our neighbors, who gathered because it was a very warm and pleasant first night,” said Helmbrecht. “There were a lot of parties and gatherings all over the community, and it was probably the biggest.”
In a statement, Governor Phil Murphy said he was “grateful for the police’s quick response” to the shooting and urged the public to help police if they have information about the shooting.
Make no mistake: this cowardly and cowardly act of gun violence only reaffirms our commitment to ensuring that New Jersey uses common sense to lead the nation in passing tough security laws. “No church should see what happened in Fairfield last night.”
