Authorities in southern New Jersey say a man and a woman were found shot to death inside a vehicle in one of nation's most dangerous cities.

Camden County prosecutors say 39-year-old Tara Ryan of Woodbury and 37-year-old Tarik Ali - whose hometown had not been confirmed as of Saturday afternoon - were found around 6:40 p.m. Friday in the area of 30th and Berkeley streets.

The car was in drive and had struck a pickup truck shortly before police arrived on scene.

It's still not clear what prompted the shootings, but authorities say both deaths have been classified as homicides.
