A 13-year-old girl taking out the trash on Christmas Day in Newark was shot and killed along with a 15-year-old neighbor boy after gunfire erupted from the street that also critically injured a third child, according to a law enforcement source.

The killings put Newark's homicide count over 100 for 2013, the first year since 2006 the city has reached that mark.

Prosecutors say the children were outside the girl's home on Schley Street in the South Ward around 10 p.m. Wednesday. The source said she was taking out the trash with her 7-year-old brother, who was not struck.

Zainee Hailey, 13, and Kasson Morman, 15, the neighbor, were pronounced dead at the hospital a short time later. A 14-year-old boy was also shot and is in critical condition.
