Three males and two females, ranging from 17 to 43, were shot; none had life-threatening injuries.

Police are not releasing the name of the suspect because he is a minor.

They arrested him at his home in the 422-unit complex, which has townhouses and two 18-story towers.

The shooting marked the third one this week in New Jersey's largest city. So far, 15 people have been injured.
