gunshot wound to his torso. He was pronounced dead at the scene at approximately 4:55 a.m., officials said.

The cause and manner of death are pending an investigation by the Regional Medical Examiner’s Office.

he preliminary investigation found that a second male had also been shot: Joseph Bossie, 19, of East Orange. Investigators believe that Miles and Bossie were traveling in the same GMC Yukon that crashed into to the pole, police said.

Bossie then managed to get himself to University Hospital in Newark where he received treatment for apparent gunshot wounds to his face and a lower extremity, officials said.

Bossie has been charged with armed robbery, possession of a weapon (Handgun) for an unlawful purpose and unlawful possession of a weapon, police said.
