On Wednesday night, 14-year-old Ali Rajohn Eric Henderson was shot and killed at a housing complex in Newark, N.J. Detectives who searched his room at the Riverview Terrace Housing Complex reportedly discovered 30 bricks of heroin, a loaded handgun and a box of ammunition.

Henderson had several prior arrests, the most recent being an Aug. 15 bust for possession of crack cocaine. The Star-Ledger says that police documents show authorities found "a loaded 9mm Smith & Wesson handgun and a box of .357 ammunition" in his room along with the 30 bricks of heroin. 

The teen's death was the tenth in Newark in ten days.
