Acting Essex County Prosecutor Carolyn Murray says 24-year-old Bronique McLeod of Newark died early Tuesday, a few hours after the shooting occurred in the 300 block of Hawthorne Avenue.

Investigators believe McLeod was sitting in the front passenger seat when the shooting occurred around 11:30 p.m. Monday. A 30-year-old man who was sitting in the back seat was wounded in the shooting, but his injuries are not considered life-threatening.

It’s not yet known what sparked the shooting, and no arrests have been made.
