Plainfield Man sentenced for 2021 shooting of Amazon delivery driver

Union County Prosecutor William A. Daniel announced today that a Plainfield man was sentenced today for the fatal shooting of 36-year-old Amazon delivery driver, Jamar Harris of Newark, that occurred in 2021.

Union County Superior Court Judge Stacy K. Boretz sentenced Quahif Lane, age 28, to 25 years in State Prison for Aggravated Manslaughter, directing that he must serve at least 85% of that sentence before being eligible for parole.

Shortly after 2:00pm on Wednesday, September 8, 2021 members of the Plainfield Police Department responded to the 200 block of Garfield Ave. and found Harris who had sustained a fatal gunshot wound, according to Assistant Prosecutor Chris Desimone, who prosecuted the case. Harris was subsequently pronounced dead at the scene.

Prosecutor Daniel commends the steadfast efforts of Assistant Prosecutor Chris Desimone, Sergeant Lamar Hartsfield, Detective Angela Concepcion, and Plainfield Police Sergeant Thomas Collinaat for their hard work on this case.

“I also thank all involved law enforcement agencies and concerned citizens whose contributions were essential to the expeditious apprehension of Mr. Lane,” Prosecutor Daniel said. “Our thoughts are with Mr. Harris’ family and loved ones.”
