Posted: Updated:

HAMILTON, N.J. (AP) -- It took Hamilton Township police nearly an hour to find a teenager who was shot at a birthday party that drew 100 people.
 
Police have confirmed 17-year-old Shakir Williams died six minutes after an ambulance returned to the scene of the shooting, which left four others wounded.
 
Police Capt. James Stevens tells The Times of Trenton officers found a chaotic scene with some guests breaking out windows as they tried to flee the home on Deutz Avenue late Friday.
 
Stevens says the first unit arrived in less than a minute after the first 911 calls.
 
Three of the four people who were shot had fled the scene.
 
Police called an ambulance back after Williams was found shot in a bedroom.
 
No charges have been filed.

    Federal authorities to monitor Newark police

    Newark police engaged in the excessive use of force, routinely stopped people on the street for no legitimate reason and regularly stole property from civilians, the U.S. Department of Justice concluded in a report released Tuesday that set the stage for federal monitoring of the police department that serves New Jersey's largest city. The report is the culmination of a three-year investigation begun months after the American Civil Liberties Union filed a complaint.

    Boaters in Lake Hopatcong in New Jersey are keeping an eye out for an unwanted visitor lurking underwater: a 14- or 15-foot-ong snake, possibly a green anaconda. Several people have seen the reptile, which has probably holed up in a drain pipe. Reptile specialists are also searching the lake for signs of the snake. So far no more sightings have been reported.
