Prosecutors say a man was killed and a woman was wounded when shots rang out on a Newark street.

But it's not yet clear what spurred the shootings in the area of South Street and Broad Avenue.

Acting Essex County Prosecutor Carolyn Murray says 20-year-old Efrahim Kinchen was pronounced dead at a hospital around 1:45 p.m. Monday, shortly after the shootings occurred. The other victim, identified only as a 33-year-old woman, was hospitalized in stable condition.

Murray says it appears that the woman was an innocent bystander, but further details on the shootings and the injuries the woman suffered were not disclosed.
