Newark NJ Man Shot, Killed in City Restaurant

Newark Homicide LawyersNewark NJ police are investigating the recent shooting death of a man at a local restaurant.

The 20-year-old victim was eating dinner inside the Royal Chicken restaurant located on Springfield Avenue. Sometime during the meal, shots were fired and the suspect was gunned down.

According to police, the victim was shot multiple times. Immediately after the shooting, the suspect was transported to nearby University Hospital. Unfortunately, doctors were unable to save the victim; he was pronounced dead shortly upon arrival at the hospital.

Newark police and the Essex County Prosecutor’s Office Major Crimes and Homicide Task Force began collaborating on an investigation. The investigation into the fatal shooting incident is active and ongoing. Police have yet to identify any suspects or make any arrests in the case.

If a suspect is eventually identified and apprehended, they could be subject to significant criminal penalties. That’s because the New Jersey Criminal Code treats first degree murder as the most serious criminal offense. As set forth by N.J.S.A. 2C:11-3, first degree murder is punishable by a sentence of life in NJ State Prison. Moreover, the minimum sentence for a first degree murder conviction is 30 years in state prison.

Authorities have asked for assistance in identifying the suspect. Anyone with information about the suspect or the shooting incident is asked to contact Morris County detectives at 877-847-7432 or 973-621-4586.
