Newark NJ police are searching for a man who may have been involved in a violent shooting on a city street.
The shooting incident occurred a short time before 1:00 a.m. near the intersection of Cutler Street and 6th Avenue in Newark, New Jersey. Police officers found the victim sitting inside a car parked on Cutler Street. According to officials, the victim was suffering from a gunshot wound.
Emergency medical responders transported the victim to nearby University Hospital, where he was treated for his injuries and later released.
Just one week after the shooting, the suspect was arrested by Newark cops in connection with the violent crime. He was subsequently charged with unlawful possession of a weapon and receiving stolen property.
An Essex County Superior Court judge ordered that the suspect wear a monitoring bracelet while the charges were pending. However, authorities are now searching for the suspect because he reportedly removed the electronic device.
