2 Men Killed, 2 Others Wounded in Newark Shooting: Prosecutors

A shooting in New Jersey's largest city has left two men dead and two others wounded, prosecutors say.

One man was pronounced dead at the scene near Lincoln Park in Newark, while another died a short time later at a hospital, Essex County prosecutors said.

The 26-year-old victims were identified Sunday as Niger Farrell, of East Orange, and Darnell Holmes, of Newark.

Two other East Orange men, ages 25 and 28, were wounded. Authorities say their injuries are not considered life-threatening, but further details were not released.

Further details on the shooting were not disclosed, including what type of weapon may have been used. No arrests have been made.

A motive for the shooting remains under investigation.
