Irvington New Jersey Police Search for Suspect in Fatal Shooting

Irvington NJ police are investigating a fatal shooting that occurred on a township street.

According to law enforcement, the victim was shot and killed while walking on the 900 block of Grove Street in Irvington, New Jersey. The shooting reportedly occurred late at night, sometime around 10:30 p.m.

The victim was rushed to Beth Israel Hospital in Newark NJ. Although doctors treated him for his injuries, they were unable to save his life; roughly half an hour after the shooting, the suspect was pronounced dead.

Irvington police later identified the victim as a 21-year-old Irvington man.

The Irvington Police Department and the Essex County Prosecutor’s Office are actively investigating the fatal shooting. At this time, authorities have not identified a suspect or a motive for the killing.

If law enforcement is eventually able to identify a suspect in the case, serious criminal charges for homicide would likely follow.

Under the New Jersey Criminal Code, murder is the most serious criminal offense. As set forth by N.J.S.A. 2C:11-3, anyone who purposely or knowingly causes the death of another person can be charged with a first degree felony. A conviction for first degree murder could lead to life imprisonment, with a mandatory minimum sentence of 30 years in NJ State Prison.
