Newark NJ Police Investigate Yet Another Fatal Shooting on City Street

Newark New Jersey Homicide AttorneysPolice in Newark New Jersey are investigating the fatal shooting of a local man on a city street.

The violent incident went down around 2:15 a.m. The Newark Police Department got a call about gunshots being fired in the area of Stratford Place and Clifton Avenue in Newark, NJ. When law enforcement arrived at the scene, they found the victim suffering from a gunshot wound.

The victim, a 19-year-old male from Newark NJ, was rushed to nearby University Hospital. Tragically, doctors at the medical facility were unable to save the victim; he was pronounced dead approximately six hours after arrival.

The Newark Police Department and the Essex County Prosecutor’s Office Homicide/Major Crimes Task Force are conducting a joint investigation into the killing. At this time, investigators have not yet identified any suspects in the tragic shooting.

If police can eventually determine the identity of the shooter, it is likely that the culprit would face criminal charges for first degree murder. As set forth by N.J.S.A. 2C:11-3, murder is the most serious crime in the New Jersey Criminal Code. While most first degree felonies carry a maximum sentence of 20 years behind bars, murder can result in life imprisonment in NJ State Prison. Moreover, a murder conviction would lead to a minimum term of incarceration of 30 years.

Anyone who has information about the shooting incident should contact Essex County investigators at 877-847-7432.
