    Police are investigating after a 15-year-old boy was fatally shot on a residential street in Newark Tuesday afternoon, authorities say.

    The teen, Coulibabry Zoumana Wilson, was found after police responded to the shooting on the 100 block of Leslie Street at about 3:30 p.m., officials say. The teen was taken to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

    Little other information on the shooting was available, but prosecutors say the killing does not appear to be random.

    Wilson was a student at Weequahic High School, authorities say.

    No arrests have been made.

    Anyone with information on the shooting is asked to call the Essex County Prosecutor’s Major Crimes Task Force at 1-877-7432.
