According to police, Sunday, October 27, at approximately 5:43 p.m., police officers responded to the area outside of 21 Belle Avenue in the City of Paterson in response to a report of shots fired. Upon their arrival, the officers discovered evidence of a crime scene outside the residence of 21 Belle Avenue where the shooting had taken place, however the victims were no longer on scene.

A short time later, two victims arrived at St. Joseph’s University Medical Center by way of a private vehicle. Fabian Anglin, 42 years old from Paterson, was admitted with a non-life threatening gunshot wound, however Anthony Anglin, 38, from Paterson, suffered a life threatening gunshot wound and succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced deceased at 6:25 p.m.

The investigation later revealed that on the night in question, Talmadge was at his mother’s house, where he engaged in a verbal dispute with the victims, who were his mother’s downstairs neighbors.

A short time later the argument escalated and Talmadge took out a handgun and opened fire on the victims before leaving the scene on foot.
