Newark NJ Police Investigate Multiple Shooting That Left One Person Dead

Newark NJ police are investigating the fatal shooting death of an individual on a city street.

Newark police dispatched officers after receiving a report of a shooting. Several people who live in the area said that they heard the gunshots but initially mistook them for fireworks.

According to law enforcement, the 29-year-old victim was one of five people shot during an incident on the 100 block of Brunswick Street in Newark, New Jersey. The shooting occurred shortly before 11:00 p.m.

The shooting victim was a resident of Newark. After the shooting, he was rushed to nearby University Hospital, where he received medical treatment for his injuries. Unfortunately, doctors were unable to save him; he was pronounced dead the next morning.

Although the victim was the only person to die as a result of the shooting, three other victims were later listed in critical condition at the hospital.

The Newark Police Department is actively investigating the shooting. At this time, investigators have yet to identify a suspect or a motive for the shooting.

If police are eventually able to identify a suspect in the case, it is likely that criminal charges for homicide would follow. As set forth by N.J.S.A. 2C:11-3, murder is a first degree felony. While first degree crimes ordinarily carry a maximum sentence of 20 years in NJ State Prison, murder is treated differently. A conviction for criminal homicide could result in life imprisonment.
