2 individuals charged with violent crime in New Jersey

Sadly, one person has died as a result of being shot, as revealed in a recent news story. Two individuals, one 22-year-old man and a minor, have been charged with the violent crime. All three men were residents of New Jersey. The suspects, now in custody, are likely to be contemplating their options for defending themselves against the allegations. 

The incident occurred in Union County, and both suspects are residents of Union township. The 17-year-old minor has been charged with homicide and weapons offenses. The older suspect was charged with first-degree robbery. The man who was found shot was a 19-year-old local resident as well. 

Authorities responded to the fatal incident in the middle of the afternoon on a recent October Sunday after reports of gunshots in the area. The victim was found suffering of a gunshot wound and died on the scene. Authorities determined the two men to be suspects in the crime. The youth suspect was taken to a juvenile detention facility to be held. The other suspect was taken to another nearby correctional facility. 

The two individuals now face serious charges in relationship to the violent crime. It is up to the prosecuting attorney to collect enough evidence to substantiate the men's criminal involvement and convict them of the crime. The prosecutors must bear the burden of proof, and the defendants will have to defend against the charges. To build a strong defense, many individuals accused of a crime in New Jersey will choose to use the guidance of a criminal defense attorney.
