MAYS LANDING — A man was found dead inside a burned car Friday evening near the Hamilton Mall, police said.

At 5:58 p.m., police responded to the mall near Buffalo Wild Wings for a report of a motor vehicle fire, according to a news release.

When they arrived, officers found the car engulfed in flames, police said, and the body of a deceased man was inside the car.

The victim has not been identified, and the incident is under investigation.

The Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office deferred comment to township police, who said no further information would be released at this time.
