Irvington NJ Police Investigate Shooting Death

The recent incident marks the 15th homicide in Irvington so far this year. According to data released by the FBI, there were a total of 17 homicides in Irvington during the entirety of 2013.

Additionally, one of the earlier shootings occurred near the intersection of Chancellor Avenue and Osborne Place, just 10 blocks from the latest shooting death.

If any suspects are identified and eventually apprehended, they could face significant penalties. As set forth by N.J.S.A. 2C:11-3, homicide is classified as a first degree criminal offense.
