Police are looking for several suspects after a shooting in Plainfield, New Jersey on Saturday night that left one man dead and three others injured.

Authorities say the shooting took place shortly after 9 p.m. in the area of West 3rd Street and Monroe Avenue.

According to the Union County Prosecutor's Office, a group of men dressed in dark clothing reportedly exited a vehicle just before more than a dozen shots were fired.

The man fatally shot has been identified as 20-year-old Dearn Marcano of Plainfield.

Witnesses tell Eyewitness News that the men were walking along the block at the time of the shooting, and that is when shots rang out.

Friends of the victims say four of them are brothers who were walking home at the time. Their ages range from 19 through 21.

A friend of the victims said that one was struck in the face, two were struck in the leg, and one was struck in the back.

Several parked vehicles were struck by the gunfire, and they have been removed from the scene to be processed for potential evidence.

Authorities are offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to an arrest and indictment. Anyone with information is being urged to contact Prosecutor's Office Sgt. Kevin Grimmer at 908-447-3777 or Detective Barry Kaplan at 908-418-2817.
