Essex County Police Investigate Murder of Edison Man at Irvington NJ Business

Police are searching for the killer of an Edison New Jersey man who was working in his family’s Irvington NJ liquor store.

The 28-year-old victim was gunned down while working alone at Roseway Liquors and Deli. The store, owned by the victim’s father, is located at 701 Lyons Avenue in Irvington, New Jersey.

The homicide occurred sometime before 4 pm.

When police officers got to the scene, they found the victim suffering from a gunshot wound.

Unfortunately, emergency medical responders were not able to save him. The victim was pronounced dead a short time after police arrived.

At this time, investigators have not identified a motive for the shooting. It is not yet known if the shooting was related to a robbery attempt.

Now the Essex County Sheriff’s Office, in conjunction with the Crime Stoppers program, has announced a $5,000 reward for information leading to an arrest in the case.

Anyone who has information about the shooting should call Essex County detectives at 973-621-4237 or the Essex County Prosecutor’s Tip Line at 877-847-7432.

If police are eventually able to identify the suspect, criminal charges for homicide would likely follow. N.J.S.A. 2C:11-3 classifies murder as a first degree felony. Moreover, the New Jersey Criminal Code imposes a maximum penalty of life imprisonment in NJ State Prison for first degree murder, with a minimum sentence of 30 years.

The loss of the victim will be felt in the community. Family members and friends of the victim said that he was a hardworking individual who was dedicated to his craft and understood the business.
