PEMBERTON TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) - Authorities say a central New Jersey man was shot and killed by a group of people in masks as he left his home while his family was inside.

A spokesman for the Burlington County Prosecutor's Office says authorities are looking for the suspects and trying to determine a motive for the shooting around 11 p.m. Tuesday in the Browns Mills section of Pemberton Township.

Spokesman Joel Bewley says the name of the victim, who was in his late 30s, will be released later Wednesday.

Bewley says children were among those at the home when the man was shot. They were not injured.
