Newark NJ Police Investigate Shooting on City Street, Search for Suspect

Newark NJ Shooting InvestigationNewark New Jersey police are investigating a non-fatal shooting in the Lower Roseville section of the city.

According to law enforcement, the victim sustained multiple gunshot wounds while walking near the intersection of North 13th Street and 6th Avenue West in Newark, NJ.

Emergency personnel found the victim lying on the street. He was reportedly suffering from injuries to his ankle and wrist.

The victim was rushed to nearby University Hospital, where he received medical treatment for his injuries. Officials later said that the victim was listed in stable condition with non-life-threatening injuries.

The Newark Police Department’s Major Crimes Unit is actively investigating the shooting. An hour after the victim was found on the street, sections of the roadway had been cordoned off by police as Newark detectives searched the area and tried to find ballistic evidence that might help them identify the shooter.

A resident in the neighborhood spoke with police and said that he was awakened by the sounds of gunshots ringing through the air.

At this time, the investigation is said to be in its “early stages.” Investigators have yet to identify a suspect or a motive for the shooting. Newark police have not released any other details about the shooting.

If a suspect is eventually identified and apprehended, they would likely be subject to significant criminal charges for aggravated assault, as well as possible weapons offenses. As set forth by N.J.S.A. 2C:12-1(b), anyone who causes bodily injury with a deadly weapon can be charged with second degree aggravated assault. A conviction for second degree aggravated assault could lead to a sentence of 5-10 years in NJ State Prison.
