New Jersey Man Killed In Oak City Double Shooting

Deputies say a New Jersey man was killed Wednesday night in Martin County.

On Friday deputies released the names of those in the shooting, but released little more information. Killed was 35 year old Walik Walker from Newark, New Jersey while 27-year-old Davirus Williams of Grimesland was wounded.

The two were found shot outside the Wilco Hess in Oak City. Sheriff Dan Gibbs says the actual shooting happened somewhere else, but so far authorities have not released that location.

No arrests have been made in the shootings.

New Jersey records show Walker had several drug arrests in Essex County. He also served prison time for robbery and weapons convictions, getting out in 2007.
