Authorities Investigating Elizabeth Homicide

 

The Union County Homicide Task Force  is investigating a fatal shooting that occurred in the city of Elizabeth last night, said Union County Prosecutor Theodore J. Romankow.

Authorities were called to 875 Anna Street around 10:30p Monday night on reports of shots fired, said Romankow. When police arrived, they discovered two victims. One, a 15-year-old, was shot in the ankle and transported to University Hospital where he will undergo surgery.

The second victim, a 16-year-old, was pronounced dead a short time later at Trinitas Hospital in Elizabeth, said Romankow.

It appears that multiple shots were fired at the victims. The Homicide Task Force, Sheriff’s Department and Elizabeth Police are investigating.

At this point, no arrests have been made and anyone with information is urged to call Union County Crimestoppers at (908) 654-TIPS.
