Irvington NJ Man Convicted of First Degree Murder for Fatal Shooting

Irvington New Jersey Homicide ChargesAn Irvington NJ man has been convicted on murder charges stemming from the fatal shooting of another man in November 2014.

The suspect reportedly committed the homicide on November 18, 2014. The victim, an 18-year-old male, was walking along Lincoln Place in Irvington when the suspect rode by on his bicycle and used a laser-sighted .45-caliber handgun to shoot the victim.

The victim sustained four gunshot wounds, with bullets entering his body through the head and chest.

The suspect is a 22-year-old man who is from Irvington, NJ. Essex County detectives were able to obtain videotape footage that showed the suspect committing the crime. He was subsequently placed under arrest and charged with murder.

At the conclusion of a trial in Essex County Superior Court, located in Newark NJ, a jury convicted the suspect on first degree murder charges. The suspect was also convicted on other criminal charges, including conspiracy to commit murder, possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose, and illegal possession of a handgun.

It is also believed by authorities that the suspect may have some connection to the shootings of two people who witnessed the Irvington murder. However, the suspect has not yet been charged for those shootings, one of which resulted in a death.

When the suspect returns to Essex County Superior Court on December 5 for a formal sentencing hearing, the superior court judge could potentially sentence him to life imprisonment in NJ State Prison. The minimum penalty in the case is 30 years behind bars.
