Teenager shot to death in Newark

Newark police are seeking two suspects in connection with a shooting that left a teenager dead. Andrea Bryant is mourning a son whom she tried to, but could not protect.

Keith Calhoun was with friends at 12th Avenue and 7th Street at 2:30 Monday morning.

Investigators said two males came up, and a heated exchange ignited. One shot was fired and Calhoun, just 14, went down.

He was shot in the back. Calhoun died before dawn.

Calhoun became a Blood when he was 11-years old, his mother said.

Abdul Muhammad, one of Newark's anti-violence activists, says it's all too easy for urban teens to slip into gang activity at age 11 and even younger.
