NEWARK - Newark authorities say two men shot and wounded each other during an argument over the price of some marijuana.

The shooting occurred around 7 p.m. Monday in the area of Emmet Street and Avenue C.

The two men - 21-year-old Angelo Tolentino, of Belleville, and 18-year-old Newark resident Edgar Delgado - were both treated at a hospital for wounds that are not considered life-threatening.

Each man was charged with aggravated assault and weapons offenses, and authorities said Wednesday that additional charges are pending. It wasn't known if either man has retained an attorney.
