Acting Essex County Prosecutor Carolyn Murray says 19-year-old Malcolm Bagley of Orange was found just before 1 a.m. Sunday by Orange police who had responded to a report of shots fired in the 100 block of Taylor Street.
Bagley was pronounced dead at the scene a short time later.
Officers soon learned a 19-year-old East Orange man had been wounded in the shooting and been taken to a hospital.
But the victim's name and further details on his injuries were not disclosed.
It's not yet known what spurred the shooting or how many people may have been involved.
The investigation is being led by the prosecutor's major crimes task force.
Anyone with information is asked to contact task force detectives at (877) 847-7432 or (973) 621-4586
