Newark NJ Police Search for Man Who Allegedly Committed Murder on City Street

Newark New Jersey Homicide AttorneysNewark law enforcement and Essex County detectives are searching for the person who fatally shot one man and seriously injured another during a late-night shooting.

The violent shooting incident occurred around 11:40 p.m. on the 100 block of Broad Street, which is located in the North Ward of Newark.

One of the shooting victims was a 25-year-old man from Newark; the other shooting victim was a 19-year-old Newark NJ male. The 25-year-old victim sustained catastrophic injuries as a result of the shooting. Although doctors at University Hospital tried to save him, they were unable to do so.

The teenage victim was also treated at University Hospital in Newark, NJ. He survived his injuries and was listed in stable condition at the Newark medical facility.

At this time, law enforcement has not been able to identify a suspect in the shootings. However, Newark NJ police officers are working hard to investigate the shootings and are hopeful that they will be able to apprehend a suspect at some point.

If Newark cops can eventually identify and capture the person responsible for the violent incident, the culprit would likely face criminal charges for first degree murder, as well as various weapons offenses.

As set forth by N.J.S.A. 2C:11-3, murder is the most serious felony in the NJ Criminal Code. In fact, while most first degree felonies typically carry a maximum penalty of 20 years in New Jersey State Prison, murder can result in a sentence of life imprisonment, with a minimum mandatory term of incarceration of 30 years behind bars.

This was the 56th murder to be committed in Newark NJ so far this year, which puts the city on pace to top the total number of homicides in 2015.
