Press Release

For Immediate Release: January 6, 2021

Shaquin Ingram

A homicide that took place in Elizabeth earlier this week is under active investigation, acting Union County Prosecutor Lyndsay V. Ruotolo and Elizabeth Police Department Chief Giacomo Sacca and Director Earl Graves jointly announced Wednesday.

The victim has been identified as 22-year-old Shaquin Ingram.

Around 1 a.m. on Tuesday, January 5, members of the Elizabeth Police Department responded to a request for a welfare check of a resident at an apartment on the 10 block of Jacques Street in Elizabeth and found Ingram at that location, having sustained serious injury, according to the preliminary investigation. She was subsequently pronounced dead at the scene.

This investigation is being led by the Union County Homicide Task Force and assisted by members of the Elizabeth Police Department and Union County Sheriff’s Office Crime Scene Unit.

Anyone with information about this matter or Ingram’s activities or personal interactions over the past month is being urged to contact Prosecutor’s Office Lt. Jose Vendas at 908-358-3048 or Detective Charles Clement at 908-577-6489. Tips can also be submitted anonymously by phone at 908-654-TIPS (8477) or online at www.uctip.org.
