According to the New Brunswick Police Department, a shooting occurred at a greek life party on Oct. 28. 


Early Saturday morning an altercation outside of a Rutgers greek life event escalated into a shooting that left one man hospitalized, according to a New Brunswick police statement.

New Brunswick Police Captain JT Miller said the altercation began around 1:30 a.m. when a group of Black males attempted to enter a greek life gathering on Hamilton Street, according to tapinto.net.

When the group was denied entry, a fight broke out inside the party. It spilled out onto the sidewalk, where a man pulled out a black handgun and fired two rounds into the crowd, according to the site.

A 21-year-old man was hit in the shoulder and transported to Robert Wood Johnson hospital and treated for non-life threatening injuries.

It is still unclear whether the victim was a student.

The suspect is described as a Black male between 5’7 and 5’9 with shoulder-length dreadlocks. He was wearing a white baggy shirt and blue jeans at the time of the incident.

Anyone with information is asked to call the New Brunswick Police Department at 732-745-5217.
