Violent crime: New Jersey police arrest 4

Police officers say they witnessed a crime in progress and were able to quickly apprehend four suspects. Two teenagers and two juveniles were arrested. The Newark, New Jersey Public Safety Director provided details of the alleged violent crime and the four accused individuals who are likely now preparing a defense against criminal charges. 

Two police officers, one from Newark and one from the adjoining city of Irvington were on patrol when they witnessed a shooting. The police officers allegedly observed a black Audi come to a stop. Apparently, a person get out of the car and shot a male victim. The car, which had been reported stolen, sped off with officers in pursuit. 

The chase ended when the vehicle collided with a Nissan. The passengers and driver of the Audi fled. Three suspects were quickly apprehended, and another person was later located inside an abandoned building with the assistance of police dogs. Each person apprehended is anticipated to be charged with aggravated assault, weapons possession and other related charges. 

The potential charges mean that the accused now face serious consequences. Penalties for this type of violent crime are extensive, which is why it is important to have the proper facts to defend against any formal accusations. Other individuals facing criminal charges have successfully used the aid of a criminal defense attorney to reduce or eliminate the charges. A person charged with a crime in New Jersey has the right to an attorney and the right to contest the accusations in court.
