SOUTH ORANGE, NJ - Police said that gunshots fired near Sloan Street on Saturday night are not believed to be related to the Pride Under the Stars Dance party, which many people attended that night.
Three shots were fired in the area at 11:12 p.m., said South Orange Police Chief Kyle Kroll in a news release.

No arrests have been made at this time.
Hundreds of teenagers were in downtown South Orange Saturday night officers said as well as many party-goers for the Under the Stars event, which celebrated Pride Month when the shots were fired.
One person sustained a minor injury from leaving the scene, according to police. The person was treated by the South Orange Rescue Squad and released.
Mutual aid from the Maplewood, West Orange, Millburn, Livingston, and Bloomfield Police Departments assisted with securing the scene last night.
