Teen slain in hail of bullets on Jersey City street

Family members placed mementos at a makeshift memorial in Jersey City Saturday for a teen who was gunned down in a hail of bullets.

Mourners say 19-year-old Antwan Hill was shot at least five times in the early morning hours outside of a pizzeria on Florence Street. Relatives say the victim was visiting people in the area. Hill is being remembered as a good kid who unfortunately will never make it to the job interview he had on Monday. A cousin says Hill?s father is, perhaps, taking his death the hardest and is inconsolable. The victim also leaves behind a mother and three siblings.

Police are not saying much about the crime, but say the investigation is ongoing.
