A third suspect has been arrested and charged in connection with the fatal shooting of a Middlesex County man at an Elizabeth housing complex late last year, acting Union County Prosecutor Grace H. Park announced Friday.
Gregory Torres, 20, was recently arrested near Richmond, Va. by members of the U.S. Marshals Service and the Virginia State Police, and he was expected to be returned to New Jersey this week. Torres, 21-year-old Jamar Mosby, and 22-year-old Firicin Augustin, all of Elizabeth, now are charged with first-degree murder in connection with the death of Bilal Fullman, 25, of Woodbridge.
It was approximately 8:35 p.m. on December 12, 2014 when Fullman was fatally shot in the first-floor hallway of a building at the Oakwood Plaza housing complex on Parker Road in Elizabeth. A joint investigation by the Union County Homicide Task Force and the Elizabeth Police Department resulted in the three defendants being identified as suspects.
Mosby and Augustin were arrested and charged in Elizabeth in January, after which Torres was located and arrested. Bail for all three men has been set at $1 million.
Murder charges can carry penalties of 30 years to life in state prison.
The investigation into the death of Mr. Fullman remains active. Anyone with information is being urged to contact Prosecutor’s Office Detective Johnny Ho at 908-403-8271 or 908-527-4509.
These criminal charges are mere accusations. Each defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
