PATERSON, N.J.  (CBSNewYork) — Police have released pictures of two “persons of interest” in the deadly shooting of an off-duty Newark police detective.

Det. Michael Morgan, 32, was shot to death outside the Sunrise Gentleman’s Lounge near Straight Street and Getty Avenue in Paterson around 3:30 a.m. Monday.

Police said a robber approached Morgan as he was talking outside with a dancer from the club. Police believe there was a struggle, and Morgan was shot once in the side.

Investigators are looking to question two men in connection with the shooting. A photo of a car believed to be connected to the case has also been released.

    This is what happens when you let SAVAGES live in a civilized culture. Next time when you zoo keepers punch out for work, make sure the gorilla cage is locked.

      To all you guys who “sag” your pants and show your butt and
      underwear… did you know it originated in prison? It was a signal to
      the other MEN that you are “available”. So if you wanna keep going
      around looking like your “available” for another dude to “tap that”…
      then keep thinking your cool while I think you look like a Fool!!!
      RE-Post if you agree… BTW it’s called PBS (Prison Bitch Syndrome) So what prison you from “Brother?”

      It’s only a Gentlemens Club when there are no Brothers in there. They only come when there is free weed.
