Newark New Jersey police recently captured three shooting suspects, each of whom had been charged with aggravated assault in connection with different shooting incidents.
Remarkably, all three arrests were made on the same day.
The first suspect is a 23-year-old female who is accused of ordering a group of people to shoot someone at a home on the 300 block of Broadway in the Mount Pleasant section of Newark, New Jersey. She allegedly got into a verbal dispute with the victim in January 2016. As the argument got out of control, the suspect reportedly called several other individuals to the residence. When the other people showed up, they allegedly fired multiple gunshots at the victim.
The suspect was later placed under arrest and charged with aggravated assault for her alleged involvement in the shooting.
The second shooting suspect, a 55-year-old woman, is accused of firing gunshots at a person in December 2015. Newark NJ police later apprehended the suspect at a home on Clinton Avenue in Irvington, NJ. She was subsequently charged with aggravated assault.
The third suspect, an 18-year-old male, allegedly participated in a shooting on the 100 block of Frelinghuysen Avenue in Newark, New Jersey. The suspect was eventually identified and apprehended. He has been charged aggravated assault.
Detectives with the Newark Police Department are actively investigating all three shooting incidents. Depending on the findings of investigators, it’s possible that Essex County NJ prosecutors could file additional charges for weapons offenses.
