Double Shooting in Orange NJ Results in One Death, Police Search for Suspect

Orange New Jersey Homicide AttorneysOrange NJ law enforcement is investigating a double shooting in the vicinity of City Hall in Orange New Jersey that left one man seriously injured and another man dead.

The fatal shooting occurred around 10:30 p.m. near the intersection of Main Street and North Day Street in Orange, NJ. The two victims were walking on the street when someone drove past them and fired multiple gunshots.

Immediately after the shooting, someone dialed 911 and alerted Orange police. Orange NJ cops were dispatched to the scene, where they found the two victims suffering from gunshot wounds.

Both victims were rushed to nearby University Hospital in Newark NJ, where they received urgent medical care for their injuries.

Tragically, one of the victims did not survive; he was pronounced dead shortly after arriving at the medical facility. The homicide victim, who lived in Landing NJ, was just 25 years old at the time of his death.

The other victim is a 24-year-old male from East Orange, NJ. He was listed in stable condition at the hospital and should survive his injuries, according to officials.

The Orange Police Department and the Essex County Prosecutor’s Office are actively investigating the homicide. At this time, investigators have not yet been able to identify a suspect in the fatal incident or a motive for the shooting.

If police can eventually determine the identity of the shooter, that person would likely face criminal charges for first degree murder, attempted murder, and aggravated assault. A conviction on first degree murder charges under N.J.S.A. 2C:11-3 could lead to life imprisonment, with a minimum mandatory term of incarceration of 30 years.
