(Bail not high enough.)
Four men were arrested and charged with murder in the terrifying carjacking of a young New Jersey man in a mall parking lot, authorities said.
Bail was set at $2 million for Karif Ford, 31, Basim Henry, 32, and Kevin Roberts, 33, all of Newark, and Hanif Thompson, 29, of Irvington, in the point-blank shooting of Hoboken resident Dustin Friedland.
The quartet face murder, carjacking, conspiracy and weapons charges. The FBI and federal marshals arrested Henry in a hotel room in eastern Pennsylvania. Thompson was arrested in Irvington, NJ, after a swarm of cops used a battering ram to reach him, according to a report.
Hoboken man killed at Short Hills Mall – safer alternatives?
Condolences to the family of Hoboken resident Dustin Friedland, who was shot and killed in an apparent carjacking after shopping at Short Hills Mall.
Friedland, who once resided at 333 River Street, was out shopping with his wife when the murder took place. She was unharmed according to police.
When shopping at an upscale mall like Short Hills becomes a dangerous scenario – maybe more people should just shop online.
Stay safe, people!
