NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - Authorities have identified two people killed during a violent night in Newark.

Essex County prosecutors say that 40-year-old Lakeisha Harris and 20-year-old Marquise Johnson were killed in two separate shootings Wednesday night.

Johnson was found dead after a shooting around 7:30 p.m.

A short time later as investigators were still processing the scene of the first shooting, gunshots rang out again, leaving Harris dead.

Two other men showed up at local hospitals with gunshot wounds as well on Wednesday night.

The shootings were being investigated and it wasn’t clear if police had any suspects.
