Katherine Carter, a spokeswoman for the county prosecutor’s office, says the shooting occurred around 9:15 p.m. Monday in an apartment in the city’s South Ward.

Carter says 26-year-old Tyfees Hamler of Newark died from his wounds. The wounded man, whose name was not released, remained hospitalized Tuesday afternoon in critical condition.

Newark police believe robbery may have been a motive for the shooting. Investigators found a large quantity of what appeared to be marijuana in the apartment.

No arrests have been made.
