LINDEN - Family and friends from all over Linden filled Hussa Street at the exact spot where 18-year-old Amber Wilson was shot and killed Monday evening.

The prosecutor's office says words were exchanged and people reported hearing an argument before the gunfire.

Wilson graduated from Linden High School last month.
