Police Investigating Shootings, Fiery Crash In Newark

NEWARK, NJ (CBS 2) — Police in Newark are investigating a series of incidents that left several people dead early Saturday morning.

In Forest Hill around 1 a.m., police say gunmen on the street exchanged fire with a man in a Range Rover, leading it to crash into a parked car.

Officials say 34-year-old Frank Caroselli of Caldwell died from multiple gunshot wounds.

Then on the west side, another victim of violence. Police say a 24-year-old man from Newark was shot as many as 15 times, killing him.

It happened just before 4 a.m. Saturday on South 10th Street near Orange Avenue.
Police say both shootings are unrelated, but say both men were the intended victims.

And less than a mile away from the second shooting on the city’s west side, a fiery wreck.
Investigators say state police were pursuing a car for speeding just after 2 a.m. Saturday, but called off the chase when the car drove into a residential neighborhood.

Police say the car then ran a red light, hit another car and smashed into three parked cars before bursting into flames.
The driver, 24-year-old Zafir Abdul Rahman and passenger, 29-year-old Qaadir King, were killed.

 Police are still investigating the shootings and the crash.

    More sad news. I keep praying for Newark. The youth and young adults with no life but that of crime are getting out of control. (sigh)

    Post pictures of Charles F. Bolden, Jr. everywhere. He was appointed by Obama himself to be the new NASA Administrator. These kids should be looking up to Mr. Bolden, as a shining exemplar.

    I just paid $22.87 for an iPad2-64GB and my girlfriend loves her Panasonic Lumix GF 1 Camera that we got for $38.76 there arriving tomorrow by UPS. I will never pay such expensive retail prices in stores again. Especially when I also sold a 40 inch LED TV to my boss for $675 which only cost me $62.81 to buy. Here is the website we use to get it all from, CentBuzz.com
