Buena police officers arrived at 408 Wheat Road and found Jones and Colon shot inside a vehicle. They were pronounced dead at the scene, the Prosecutor’s Office said.

The address the Prosecutor’s Office provided for the case is associated with MVP Sports Bar, where a large parking lot is next to the building. A truck-and-trailer parts warehouse is across the street.

A bartender Saturday said the establishment would not comment on the incident, and people outside the bar were unwilling to talk. Bar management asked a reporter to leave.

The investigation is continuing and is a cooperative effort among the Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office Major Crimes Unit, the Buena Borough, Vineland and Millville police departments, the Cumberland County Prosecutor’s Office, U.S. Marshals Service and New Jersey State Police Major Crimes.
