CAMDEN, N.J. (WPVI) -- Three people were shot at a backyard barbecue on Tuesday night in Camden, New Jersey.

One of the victims is in critical condition.

Police say a gunman opened fire around 11 p.m. on the 1300 block of Sheridan Street.

Officers are now hunting for that gunman and accomplice.

"It doesn't appear to be a random act," Camden County Police Chief Scott Thomson said.

Thomson adds that there were no complaints about the party before the shooting
