Authorities say that two men from Newark have been arrested in connection with a fatal shooting in the hallway of an apartment building.
Acting Essex County Prosecutor Theodore N. Stephens said that Ibn Hill, age 22, and Tyquan Zigler, age 27, both of Newark, were charged with killing Jerry Works Jr., age 50, of Newark in 2020. Both men are from Newark.
