5 face weapons charges in deadly New Jersey highway shootout

Police say four men and a teenager have been charged in a New Jersey highway shootout that left another man dead and four of the suspects wounded.

They also are looking for a pickup truck that may have been involved in the shooting Monday afternoon on the Atlantic City Expressway in Egg Harbor Township.

Rosemund Octavius, a 22-year-old Egg Harbor Township resident, was killed.

Authorities say Octavius was a passenger in a car driven by 24-year-old Anthony Hicks, of Mays Landing. Hicks wasn't injured but faces weapons charges that were announced Tuesday.

Three men and a 16-year-old in an SUV also were wounded. They all face weapons charges. It's unclear if any of the defendants has an attorney who could comment on the accusations.

Authorities say more charges could be filed.
