Joseph Jones, 37, was shot and killed around 8:15 p.m. Thursday in the parking lot at Lakeside Middle School in Millville. Many children were in the area when he was shot, Cumberland County prosecutors said.

Authorities say at least one shooter was in the car that fled from the school moments later. Someone in the car then fired at some police officers a short time later, but no one was hit and the officers did not return fire.

A motive for the shooting remains under investigation. No arrests have been made.
