PATERSON, N.J. (AP) - Police say a man attending a block party as part of the National Night Out anti-crime initiative was shot and killed in New Jersey's third-largest city.

Paterson police say 39-year-old Robert Godfrey was shot in the head while arguing with another man on a crowded street Tuesday.

Police are searching for a 30-year-old man who has been charged with Godfrey's murder and weapons offenses.

Lt. Ron Humphrey says witnesses saw the two men arguing loudly when the suspect pulled a gun and shot Godfrey once in the head.

National Night Out is observed across the U.S. as an annual event meant to heighten drug and crime prevention awareness.
