Police Search for Suspect Accused of Murder at Newark NJ Gas Station

Newark Gas Station Shooting SuspectNewark New Jersey police are trying to determine the identity of a man who may have been involved in a deadly shooting at a local gas station.

According to the Essex County Prosecutor’s Office, the fatal shooting occurred during the early morning hours at a Shell gas station located on South Orange Avenue in Newark, NJ.

The 16-year-old victim sustained multiple gunshot wounds as a result of the shooting.

The victim was rushed to nearby University Hospital. Unfortunately, doctors at the hospital were unable to save the victim; he was pronounced dead less than half an hour after the shooting.

The Essex County Prosecutor’s Office and the Newark Police Department are collaborating on the investigation.

Investigators recently released a photo of the suspect. The photo was obtained from surveillance video footage at the scene of the shooting. According to officials, the image shows “the lone shooter fleeing the scene.”

If police are eventually able to identify and track down the suspect, he would likely face severe criminal penalties. As set forth by N.J.S.A. 2C:11-3, murder is the most serious offense in the NJ Criminal Code. A conviction on first degree murder charges could result in life imprisonment, with a minimum mandatory term of incarceration of 30 years in New Jersey State Prison.

Police have asked for the public’s assistance in identifying the suspect. Anyone who has information about the suspect or the fatal shooting should call 877-847-7432 to leave an anonymous tip.
