Funeral Wednesday for teen gunned down in Linden
LINDEN -- Mourners will gather Wednesday to remember the young New Jersey woman killed during an armed robbery weeks after she graduated from high school.
Services for Amber Wilson will take place at First Baptist Church in Linden.
Authorities said the 18-year-old cheerleader was walking from a Dunkin' Donuts in Linden with a friend when she was approached, shot and robbed on July 9.
No arrests have been made.
Wilson may have known her assailant because authorities said words were exchanged before the shooting.
Union County CrimeStoppers is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to an arrest.
