PATERSON, N.J. – Authorities in Paterson turned to the public for help Thursday in finding a pair of killers.

Keyantay Deas, 37, of Paterson was walking along 12th Avenue in the 300 block around 8:40 p.m. Monday when two assailants – both armed with handguns – approached and fired at him several times, authorities said.
