Authorities say the shooting deaths of two men gunned down on a Newark street last week was not a “random incident.”

Acting Essex County Prosecutor Carolyn Murray said 20-year-old Terrence Jackson and 19-year-old Wali Gartrell were shot multiple times on South 13th Street late Friday morning. Gartrell was pronounced dead at the scene, while Jackson died several hours later at a hospital.

Chief Assistant Prosecutor Thomas Fennelly, director of the office’s homicide unit, said Monday that it appears the victims were targeted and that the shootings are related to an “ongoing dispute” between the victims and the suspected shooters.

No arrests have been made.
