New Jersey altercation leads to murder charge

Conflict can happen at any time and for a variety of different reasons. Unfortunately, some conflict can turn physical, leaving those involved fearful for their lives and in a position where they must decide how to protect themselves. Recently, an altercation in New Jersey is said to have resulted in a fatality. Two men have since been arrested in connection with the incident, and one of them is facing a murder charge.

The incident that led to the arrests happened during the early morning hours of a day in mid-December. According to reports, a group of people were engaged in a fight outside of a bar. Police say that a 20-year-old man assaulted someone with the intent "to cause serious bodily injury." Reports claim that a 23-year-old man then fired a gun, allegedly striking a 28-year-old man.

The injured man was reportedly found by police in the yard of a nearby home. He was transported to the hospital where he ultimately passed away. The two other men are now facing criminal charges. The older defendant is charged with murder while the other is accused of aggravated assault. The two men are being held without bond.

Unfortunately, the charges against the two men are serious and likely come with serious consequences if they are convicted. Many people in New Jersey who face such severe accusations are unsure of their legal options. In many cases, they may be unable to recognize unlawful treatment. As a result, they often want an experienced criminal defense attorney guiding them as they navigate the justice system.
