Essex County prosecutors say the shooting occurred Saturday night at a site near Lincoln Park in Newark.

They say one man was pronounced dead at the scene, while another died a short time later at a hospital. Those 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 in the shooting. 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.
