Last night's shooting in the area of Hale Street and Throop Avenue left one person in serious condition, according to the New Brunswick Police Department.


Three people were injured in a shooting at approximately 9:30 p.m. yesterday in the area of Throop Avenue and Hale Street, according to a press release from the New Brunswick Police Department (NBPD).

The preliminary investigation suggests that it was not a random act of violence, but that multiple suspects were targeting multiple victims.

Two male victims, aged 20 and 21-years-old, are New Brunswick residents that sustained non-life threatening injuries. The third victim, a 20 year old male from Somerset, New Jersey, is currently in serious condition and being treated at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital, according to the release.

One of the suspects is described as a tall and skinny African-American male that covered his face with a black and white bandana, according to the release.

No other suspect descriptions are available at this time.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Kenneth Abode at (732) 745-5217.
