Newark NJ Police Search for Suspect Accused of Shooting on City Street

Newark New Jersey Assault ChargesNewark NJ police are looking for a man who allegedly shot someone on a city street.

According to Newark authorities, the shooting occurred on July 12. The victim, a 30-year-old Newark NJ resident, was walking along the 300 block of North 7th Street in Newark when the suspect approached him. As the suspect got closer, the victim could see that he was brandishing a handgun.

The suspect allegedly fired at least one gunshot and seriously injured the victim. The suspect then ran away and fled the scene on foot.

Newark NJ police received a report of gunshots being fired and quickly dispatched police officers to the area. When Newark cops arrived at the scene, they found the victim suffering from a gunshot wound.

The victim was transported to Clara Maas Medical Center, where doctors treated him for his injuries. He was later listed in stable condition and then released from the hospital.

The Newark Police Department has been actively investigating the shooting incident. Investigators were already to identify a suspect in the case: a 21-year-old man who may be an acquaintance of the victim.

If law enforcement can apprehend the suspect, it is probable that he would face serious criminal charges for aggravated assault and illegal handgun possession in connection with the shooting. As set forth by N.J.S.A. 2C:12-1(b), aggravated assault with a deadly weapon such as a handgun or a knife is a third degree felony that carries a punishment of 3-5 years in NJ State Prison.
