Four young people were shot in the head at close range in a school parking lot, killing all but one, authorities said Sunday.

The victims were shot overnight after they were lined up against a back wall near a set of bleachers at the K-8 Mount Vernon School, prosecutor’s office spokesman Paul Loriquet said.

A woman, Ofemi Hightower, and two men, Terrance Aeriel and Deshawn Harvey, were killed, said Loriquet, who did not know their ages. Aeriel’s 19-year-old sister, Natasha, was in fair condition at a hospital Sunday afternoon.

“All four were good kids,” Loriquet said.

The Aeriels and Harvey were students at Delaware State University, said Carlos Holmes, a spokesman for the school in Dover, Del.

No one has been arrested, and investigators had no information on a motive.
