Officers then received reports of shots fired on the 100 block of Madison Avenue around 4:20 a.m., and found 35-year-old Marquise Mclamb, also of Newark, had been shot.
He was taken to University Hospital and died a short time later.
Both investigations were active and ongoing as of Sunday afternoon.
