ASBURY PARK - An engaged man with two children was shot and killed this morning in Asbury Park, according to police.

Police say Derek Williams was gunned down early this morning at the corner of Sixth Avenue and Bond Street.

Neighbors tell News 12 New Jersey that the neighborhood on the east side of the city is usually quiet.

Williams' death is the third murder in Asbury Park in the past three weeks. Last Friday, another young father, 24-year-old Nijed Johnson, was shot and killed on Sewell Avenue as he and his pregnant girlfriend waited on their porch for the arrival of their daughter's school bus.
