Police allege attempted murder in shooting of New Jersey burglar

When people in New Jersey suspect that they are the victim of a crime, their immediate reaction is often to respond in a way to protect themselves and their property. Unfortunately, this reaction can also create legal complications for these victims of crime. In fact, a man in New Jersey is now accused of attempted murder after he allegedly shot a man in the midst of burglarizing a vehicle on the latter's property.

The incident that led to the arrest of two people happened during the early morning hours of a day in January. Reports indicate that a 37-year-old man shot a 19-year-old man in the torso. The teenager was reportedly inside a vehicle in the driveway of a home owned by the older man. The teenager reportedly ran from the scene and was discovered later in a fast food restaurant; he was transported to the hospital where he is in stable condition.

Reports indicate that the man apologized several times before he was shot. They also allege that he attempted to break into several other vehicles in the area. He is charged with third-degree car burglary.

The homeowner is charged with fourth-degree possession of a prohibited large-capacity weapon and second-degree possession of a weapon for unlawful purposes in addition to the attempted murder charge. Often, just allegations leave those without legal training unsure of their options. As a result, the man may choose to consult with an experienced attorney in New Jersey to help him choose the best response to the allegations against him.
