    New Jersey police say the victim of a deadly shooting in the parking lot behind a popular restaurant and brewery Wednesday morning was the intended target and not a casualty of a "random incident," prosecutors said.

    Burlington County police officers responded to Iron Hill Brewery along Kings Highway in Maple Shade around 8:25 a.m. and found 26-year-old Devon Young, of Willingboro, in the parking lot suffering from gunshot wounds. He was later pronounced dead.

    "It is believed that the victim was the intended target of this shooting and that this was not a random incident," county prosecutors said

    Young worked at Albo Appliance & Mattress, which is located next to Iron Hill. An employee said co-workers were on lockdown after the shooting.

    A spokesman for Iron Hill said no one from the brewery or restaurant was injured or involved in the incident. The brewery is cooperating with police, Iron Hill spokesman Michael Gregor said in a new release. 

    No charges have been filed and the case remains under investigation, Burlington County Prosecutor's Office said.
