Brendan P. Tevlin, the 19-year-old Livingston native who was found shot to death in his family’s Jeep in West Orange last week, was laid to rest at St. Philomena’s Church in Livingston Tuesday morning.

A Seton Hall Prep graduate, Tevlin had recently finished his freshman year at the University of Richmond. The eldest of four children, he was the grandson of retired Maplewood firefighter Tom Tevlin and nephew to Maplewood Fire Deputy Chief Joseph Callaghan.

Last week, Callaghan described his nephew as “a straight-A kid, Eucharistic minister at church, first-year honor student at the University of Richmond, a lacrosse player at Seton Hall Prep, a surfer, a great cousin to my children, a great brother to three younger siblings, an all-around wonderful, loving, caring kid.”

Prosecutors released photos of two young men seen on surveillance video running in the area of the shooting, which happened at Walker Road and Northfield Avenue, according to CBS News.

There is a reward of $25,000 for information leading to an arrest. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Essex County Prosecutor’s Office tip line at (877) 847-7432.
