IRVINGTON, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — Police have issued an arrest warrant for four people in connection with a shooting that killed a store owner this past weekend.
Warrants were issued for four suspects from Newark. Carnel Colbett, 22, and a 17-year-old juvenile, already have been arrested, while brothers Ivery Brinson, 26; and Shakil Brinson, 26, remained at large Wednesday, police said.
