Authorities charged Casey Cole with conspiracy to commit robbery, felony murder, and robbery.

Isaac Rinas, 18, and a friend drove to a dangerous neighborhood in Paterson after the 18-year-old had received his diploma from Wayne Valley High School on Wednesday, police said.

Police said the teens parked and Cole entered the vehicle, brandished a gun and demanded money from the friend.

Rinas was shot in the neck, suffering a fatal wound. The gunman got away at the time, police said.

Bail was set at $2 million cash, then Passaic County Prosecutor's Office said.

    State ends hunt for snake in Lake Hopatcong

    A 16-foot-long exotic snake reportedly slithering around New Jersey's largest lake is apparently a suburban legend. Or the snake just isn't hungry. The state has stopped looking for the reptile after scientists failed to find any evidence of it in Lake Hopatcong and traps baited with chicken were left untouched. Three unconfirmed sightings this month of a snake, perhaps an anaconda as long as 16 feet, raised concerns among visitors and swimmers.
