Argument Spurs Fatal Newark Shooting: Authorities

Authorities say a dispute between two Newark residents ended with one fatally shooting the other.

Essex County prosecutors tell The Star-Ledger that 45-year-old James Tindal was charged with aggravated manslaughter and weapons charges in the death of 32-year-old city resident Joey Reyes.
But they did not say what the men were arguing about or provide further details about the shooting, including what type of weapon was used.

Police officers responding to reports of shots fired found Reyes around 12:30 a.m. Saturday in the 200 block of Mount Prospect Avenue. He was pronounced dead at the scene, and Tindal was taken in to custody a short time later.
No other injuries were reported.
Tindal was being held on $75,000 bail. It was not known if he's retained an attorney.
