Newark NJ Woman Shot While Walking on City Street, Two Suspects Arrested

Newark NJ Aggravated Assault AttorneysNewark New Jersey police are investigating the shooting of a local woman that resulted in serious physical injuries.

The non-fatal shooting occurred around 4:00 p.m. According to law enforcement, the victim was walking on the 100 block of Ridge Street when she was shot by someone driving past her in a motor vehicle.

The Newark Police Department received a 911 call about the shooting and immediately dispatched police officers to the scene. When Newark police got to the area, they found the victim suffering from a gunshot wound.

The 47-year-old victim, who lives in Newark, NJ, was briefly treated at the scene and then transported to Clara Maass Medical Center in Belleville, New Jersey. Doctors at the Belleville NJ hospital treated the victim for her gunshot-related injuries. She was later listed in stable condition, with hospital officials saying that her gunshot wound was not considered to be life threatening.

Meanwhile, Newark NJ police officers made two arrests near the scene of the shooting. Two local men allegedly tried to flee the area in a car and crashed along Grafton Avenue. Newark law enforcement then placed them under arrest.

The suspects, a 25-year-old man and a 32-year-old man, are both from Newark, NJ.

The 25-year-old suspect has been charged with illegal possession of a handgun because police allegedly found him with a firearm. Meanwhile, the 32-year-old suspect has been charged with resisting arrest and obstructing the administration of law.

It is very possible that additional criminal charges could be filed in the case, depending on the outcome of the Newark police investigation into the shooting. If authorities can connect the men to the non-fatal shooting of the Newark NJ woman, it is likely that the suspects would also face aggravated assault charges.

While the Newark Police Department Cease Fire Shooting Response team continues to investigate the criminal incident, authorities have asked for the public’s assistance. Anyone who has information about the shooting or the suspects should call the Newark Police Crime Stoppers tip line at 877-NWK-TIPS or 877-NWK-GUNS.
