1 Dead, 1 Wounded In Newark Shooting

One man was killed and another was wounded when shots rang out on a Newark street.

Essex County prosecutors say 29-year-old Terrell Dixon of Irvington was killed in the shooting on Renner Avenue in Newark, which was reported around 8:30 p.m. Friday.

Authorities responding to reports of shots fired soon learned that two victims had been taken to a hospital. Dixon died there a short time later, while the second victim remained hospitalized Saturday in stable condition.

The name of the wounded man and further details on his injuries were not disclosed.

A motive for the shooting remains under investigation by the prosecutor’s office and Newark police. No arrests have been made.
