Police investigate fatal shooting

 

††††††††† Middlesex County Prosecutor Bruce J. Kaplan and Anthony A. Caputo, director of the New Brunswick Police Department, announced today that a 24-year-old man was killed on a city street, the apparent victim of multiple gunshot wounds.

 

Joshua Negron of New Brunswick was pronounced dead at 12:02 a.m. today at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick, where he was taken after he was shot and wounded on Hale Street near the corner of Remsen Avenue.

 

While on patrol, members of the New Brunswick Police Department heard gunshots at 11:15 p.m. on November 12, 2012, and immediately responded to the scene, where they found the victim.

 

The results of an autopsy by the Middlesex County Medical Examinerís Office were not immediately available, but it appears the victim was shot multiple times.

 

A preliminary investigation by Detective Ronoldy Martinez of the New Brunswick Police Department and Investigator Adrian Villegas of the Middlesex County Prosecutorís Office determined that the shooting was not a random act, but occurred when an individual apparently selected his victim from a group of people who had gathered at Hale Street and Remsen Avenue.

 

No arrests have been made, but an investigation is continuing.

 

Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Martinez of the New Brunswick Police Department at (732) 745-5217, or Investigator Villegas of the Middlesex County Prosecutorís Office at (732) 745-4428.
