Newark NJ Man Arrested, Connected to Three Shootings

Newark NJ Shooting SuspectNewark NJ police recently arrested a local man who is allegedly connected to several area shootings.

The 20-year-old suspect is accused of taking part in at least three shootings in Newark, New Jersey. According to Newark detectives, the shootings occurred over a three-week period from December 19 to January 5.

The first shooting took place on the 300 block of Mount Prospect Street on December 19.

The second shooting reportedly occurred just one day after Christmas on the 100 block of Stanton Street in Newark. Police officers discovered a male victim who was suffering a gunshot wound to his right leg. The victim was taken to a local hospital, where he received medical treatment for his injuries.

After the victim was treated and released from the hospital, Newark police interviewed him. The victim told police that he had been approached by an unidentified man. The man allegedly pointed a gun at the victim and demanded that the victim hand over his wallet and his cell phone.

When the victim resisted and pushed his car door into the suspect, the suspect reportedly responded by shooting the victim in the leg. The suspect then fled the area on foot.

Newark police investigated both shootings and eventually identified the suspect.

The suspect was apprehended at a residence located on Milford Avenue. Members of the Newark Police Department Fugitive Apprehension Team placed the suspect under arrest.

During the arrest, police allegedly discovered a .40 caliber handgun and other pieces of evidence at the residence.

Investigators have also linked the suspect to a third shooting near the intersection of Garside Street and 4th Avenue on January 5.

The suspect has been charged with aggravated assault in connection with the shootings. He is also likely to face charges for unlawful possession of a weapon.

According to police, the investigation into the suspect remains active and ongoing. As a result, it is possible that the suspect will face additional charges.

The Newark Police Department has asked for the public’s assistance. Anyone who has information about the suspect or any of the shootings is asked to contact the police department’s anonymous tip line at 877-695-8477.
