    Hudson County prosecutors announced Sunday that a warrant was issued for 24-year-old Daquan Mixson, who faces murder, aggravated assault and weapons charges in the slaying of 21-year-old Darius Dashawn Redmon.

    Redmon, of Jersey City, was shot in the head late Friday night while he sat in a car in the area of the Booker T. Washington Housing Complex.
     
    No other injuries were reported and a motive for the shooting has not been determined.
     
    Authorities say three men drove the wounded Redmon to a police department station, where officers performed CPR before he was taken to a hospital. He was pronounced dead at the hospital on Saturday night.
