Family and neighbors are mourning a mother from Flatbush, Brooklyn who was fatally shot in New Jersey last night as she walked with her husband and three-year-old son.
 

Nazish Noorani, 27, was killed and her husband, Kashif Pervaiz, was injured in a shooting in Boonton, N.J. late last night.

The Pakistani-American couple left an iftar, the dinner that breaks day-long fasting during the Muslim holiday of Ramadan, and was pushing the son in a stroller to another nearby home when the attack took place.

Boonton has a large Pakistani population, and family members said the violence is unusual for the area.

"Especially with automatic rifles and three people coming out? That's the first time I ever heard of it," said Muhammad Wajahaat Khan, the victim's cousin. "It's just crazy that it happened to one of our family members."

"He'd come here, that's his wife's home," said Shafik Hassan, Pervaiz's father.

The Morris County prosecutor said the couple appears to have been targeted and at this point there is no danger to the general public.

The shot couple's children are being taken care of by the maternal grandparents.

Police in northern New Jersey are still investigating the incident.
