Police have suspect in teen's slaying in Asbury Park

Police have a suspect in the fatal Asbury Park shooting that prompted educators to shut down five schools.

Officials are looking for 19-year-old Shawn Johnson of Pine Street. Police say he is armed and dangerous. Tylik Pugh, 18, was gunned down Wednesday near Asbury Park Middle School and later died. The school district ordered area schools closed for fear of retribution.

While students are scheduled to head back to class Monday, some parents remain fearful the violence may be far from over.
