Authorities have released surveillance photos of a man wanted in connection with a fatal shooting in Newark.

Hykine Johnson, 35, of Newark was fatally shot at a gas station on the corner of Washington and Court Street in Newark at approximately 7:45 p.m. on Friday, November 9.

The surveillance photos show the man who entered the mini mart and opened fire on the victim, who was pronounced dead at University Hospital at approximately 8:10 p.m.

Authorities say the victim was a patron not an employee of the gas station. Investigators say they have reason to believe he was targeted.

Anyone with information is urged to contact the Essex County Prosecutor's Office tips hotline at (877) 847-7432.
