One man has been killed and a second wounded in a shooting in Newark. Police say a 19-yar-old man was shot in the head and a second 19-year-old was shot in the hand at about 5:45 p.m. Monday.

Detective Hubert Henderson, a spokesman for the Newark Police Department, says the man struck in the head died shortly after being transported to University Medical Center.

The death brings the number of homicides in Newark to 18 so far this year. That compares to 21 during the same period a year ago.
