Scary and very sad:
A man and woman in New Jersey were walking to a relative's home with their small child after iftar when someone opened fire on them. By the time it was over, the wife was dead and the husband was in the hospital having been shot 4 times.
The police are calling it a "targeted shooting", but are releasing no details.http://www.nj.com/news/index.ssf/2011/08/mother_killed_and_father_gunne.htmlMother fatally shot, father wounded in apparent targeted shooting on Boonton street

A mother walking with her 3-year-old son in Boonton late Tuesday night was shot and killed and her husband injured in what prosecutors are saying appears to be a targeted shooting. The family was taking a stroll after Ramadan’s traditional evening meal, authorities said this morning.
Neighbors said they heard between five and eight shots ring out on quiet Cedar Street in the Morris County town about 11:30 p.m., killing Nazish Noorani, 27, police and relatives said. The child, who was in his stroller, was not hurt, but her husband, Kashif Pervaiz, was taken to a local hospital with gunshot wounds, they said.
"This investigation is ongoing and the release of information at this stage would compromise the progress of same," said Morris County Prosecutor Robert Bianchi.

Bianchi wouldn't say which family member or both appeared to be the target. (More ... @ http://www.nj.com/news/index.ssf/2011/08/mother_killed_and_father_gunne.html
