FBI Captures Newark New Jersey Man Wanted on Murder Charges

Newark New Jersey Murder ChargesNewark NJ police arrested a local man who allegedly committed a murder on a city street.

According to authorities, the 21-year-old suspect shot and killed a 38-year-old man on a street in Newark during the middle of the day. The killing occurred near the intersection of Astor Street and Brunswick Street in Newark’s South Ward.

The victim, who was also from Newark NJ, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Law enforcement conducted an investigation and soon identified the suspect as the possible shooter. The Newark Police Department, the Essex County Prosecutor’s Office, and the FBI were all involved in the investigation.

The FBI Fugitive Task Force eventually tracked down the suspect in the Bronx, New York. He was placed under arrest without further incident.

Although investigators have yet to determine a motive for the killing, they did reveal that the suspect and the victim were friends.

If the suspect is ultimately convicted of murder, he would be subject to severe penalties. Murder is the most serious crime in the NJ Criminal Code. As set forth by N.J.S.A. 2C:11-3, murder is classified as a first degree felony. A conviction for first degree murder could lead to life imprisonment, with a minimum mandatory term of incarceration of 30 years in New Jersey State Prison.

After being arrested and processed, the suspect was taken to the Essex County Correctional Facility in Newark, NJ. He was being held at the jail in lieu of $1 million bail.
