An already ‘stretched thin’ Essex County Prosecutor’s Office - due to multiple fatal shooting investigations around Newark - now has detectives on the scene of another homicide.
At approximately 3:30 p.m., Newark Police responded to reports of shots fired near Central Avenue and South 10th Street.
Upon arrival, police found a vehicle with a person inside suffering multiple bullet wounds.
The unidentified male was pronounced dead at the scene. It is unclear if this murder is connected to the homicide on South 10th and 13th Avenue at this time.
The suspect fled the scene and remains at large.
