Newark officials say two teenagers have been shot and killed and a third is in critical condition in the northern New Jersey city.

Acting Essex County Prosecutor Carolyn A Murray and Newark Police Director Samuel A DeMaio say a 13-year-old girl and a 14-year-old boy were fatally shot Christmas night.

Both were pronounced dead at a local hospital. They say a third young victim has been hospitalised in critical but stable condition. That teen's gender was not immediately known.

The names of the victims have not been released.

The Star-Ledger newspaper reports that the shootings happened about 10pm Wednesday (local time) not far from Interstate 78 and Irvington, a neighbouring city.
