NEWARK - Authorities have charged a man with murder and weapons offenses in connection with the shooting death of a 20-year-old Newark man Sunday night.

Officials say 20-year-old Ahman Taylor shot Amir McLean, also 20, after the two apparently got into an argument on Riverview Court.

McLean was taken to University Hospital where he was later pronounced dead.

Taylor, who fled the scene, was arrested and is being held on $750,000 bail at the Essex County Correctional Facility, according to authorities.
