NEW JERSEY (CBSNewYork/AP) — Police are on the hunt for two brothers in connection with the shooting death of a rapper at a New Jersey salon last weekend.

Zaire Cromedy, 21, of New Brunswick and 28-year-old Antwan Cromedy, of Bound Brook, both face first-degree murder charges in the death of 28-year-old Eric Andrews Jr., whose stage name was E-9.

Somerset County prosecutors announced a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to the whereabouts and arrests of both suspects.

Authorities said the shooting occurred just before 6 p.m. Sunday inside the Nu Trendz Hair Salon in Franklin Township.  They said the men began arguing and the dispute soon turned physical.

Andrews was taken to a hospital, where he died a short time later.
