Essex County Prosecutors
Two men were killed and another was hospitalized following separate shootings in Newark. But authorities say it doesn’t appear that the incidents are connected.
Essex County prosecutors say 28-year-old Shante Spivey of East Orange was among five people sitting in a parked car on Springfield Avenue in the city’s West Ward when someone approached them late Tuesday morning and started shooting.
The officer, identified only as a 23-year veteran of the force, tried to stop the suspect. But when Brent appeared to be reaching for a weapon, the officer fired one shot from his service weapon.
Jennifer Sahoye, 35, has been charged with vehicular homicide in connection with the Oct. 10 crash on Routes 1 & 9 in Newark.
Authorities in northern New Jersey say a Newark man was killed in a shooting outside an Irvington go-go bar that left four other men wounded.
