Over a Dozen Gunshot Rounds Fired at Newark West Ward Housing Complex

By rlsmetro on

Police in Newark are investigating a shooting incident at a West Ward Housing development Wednesday evening. 

The out-of-control situation happened a little after 9 p.m. at the Bradley Court Housing complex on Munn Avenue. 

Officers were dispatched to the area after a ShotSpotter device detected about 15 rounds of gunfire in the area. 

Units arrived and found shell casings littering the area.

Police say a neighborhood search resulted in no victims, but there was some property damage. 

Just before midnight, police located a stolen Kia Sorrento in Muhammad Ali Avenue and Prince Street. 

Police believe that suspect who occupied the car is wanted for several other felonies. 

The suspects remain at large.
