Essex County prosecutors say the shooting occurred around 7:20 a.m. Tuesday on Tillinghast street. They say 29-year-old city resident Carl Talbert, and a 35-year-old woman were sitting in the vehicle when the shooting ocurred.

Talbert was pronounced dead a short time later, while the woman was being treated at a hospital for wounds that were not considered life-threatening.
