Witnesses said that the people in the SUV sought assistance from passers-by as soon as they entered the parking lot.

'The driver said he was shot,' Erwin Ashworth told WCAU-TV in Philadelphia. 'The passenger was hanging from the window. ... He said everybody was shot at least a couple times.'

The victims were taken to hospitals for treatment of undisclosed injuries. Authorities said at least one victim had 'serious' injuries.

So far, New Jersey State Police have not released any information about the shooter.

Traffic was still slow on the expressway into Monday evening.  

Police said they do not know the motive behind a white SUV being riddled with bullets on a crowded highway

With Jer-z having the 4th worst drivers in the country, it could be a case of road rage. If jer-z were an open carry state, these shootings would be an everyday thing.
