IRVINGTON — A shooting in the township left one person dead Tuesday afternoon, law enforcement officials confirmed.

The male victim was found on the 300 block of Myrtle Avenue, according to Chief Assistant Prosecutor Thomas Fennelly, of the Essex County Prosecutor's Office homicide unit. The shooting occurred around 4:30 p.m.

Homicides and shootings in Irvington have declined sharply this year, according to law enforcement records. Township officials recently credited the deployment of new investigative units with driving down killings.

Last year, there were 14 homicides reported in the township. The prosecutor's office was set to release further details later.
