N.J. Man Charged With Attempted Murder In Kean University House Party Shooting
HILLSIDE, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) – A Union County, N.J. man who allegedly started shooting after he was thrown out of an off-campus fraternity house party near Kean University last month is now facing four counts of attempted murder.
Shaquan Landrum, 25, of Hillside also faces weapons charges stemming from the April 18 shooting at the Sigma Theta Chi fraternity house, according to the Star-Ledger. He was being held on $250,000 bail and it wasn’t known if he’s retained an attorney.
One person, identified only as a Kean University student, was wounded in the abdomen and remains hospitalized.
Authorities said the shooting occurred in the early hours of April 18 after Landrum was physically removed from the party. According to police, he returned minutes later with a handgun and fired multiple shots at the house while partygoers were standing on the porch and the front lawn.
