Orange NJ Police Investigate Two Recent Shootings, Homicides

Police in Orange New Jersey are investigating a late-night shooting on a township street that left a man dead.

According to the Essex County Prosecutor’s Office, the fatal shooting went down a short time before 11:00 p.m. near the intersection of Main Street and North Day Street in Orange, NJ.

The Orange Township Police Department and the Essex County Prosecutor’s Office Homicide/Major Crimes Task Force are conducting a joint investigation into the homicide.
The victim is believed to be a local resident of Orange, NJ. At this time, authorities have not indicated whether anyone else sustained injuries as a result of the shooting.

This marks the second fatal shooting in Orange during the past week. Last week, a 39-year-old Orange NJ resident was shot and killed while walking along Central Avenue in Orange, New Jersey.

Additionally, two other people suffered serious gunshot-related injuries during the shooting incident.

When Orange NJ law enforcement arrived at the scene of the shooting, the 300 block of Central Avenue near Carteret Place, they discovered the homicide victim lying on the pavement. Emergency medical responders pronounced the victim dead at the scene a short time later.

Orange NJ police detectives have not yet been able to identify a suspect in either of the recent homicides. If investigators can determine the identity of a shooter in either fatal shooting, it is likely that criminal charges for first degree murder and weapons offenses would follow.

A conviction on murder charges could lead to severe penalties. As set forth by N.J.S.A. 2C:11-3, a murder conviction could result in a punishment of life imprisonment in NJ State Prison, with a minimum mandatory term of incarceration of 30 years.
