Update: Victim shot twice
Here’s an update regarding last night’s shooting. The suspect (or “actor” as they often refer to them as) was a black male, wearing all black. Still at large.
The victim was also a black male. He was shot twice. Once in the leg, and once in the stomach. He is currently getting treated at HUMC, and is expected to survive.
Shots Fired in Hoboken (near 8th & Monroe)
Apparently one person has been taken to Hoboken University Medical Center. Unknown condition.
Also unknown are the circumstances behind this latest shooting (hot on the heels of the shooting death on Grand Street yesterday morning).
While 8th & Monroe seems safer than it used to be, with up and coming developments and a bustling arts center, this area is still very close to the
criminal magnet NJ Light Rail station a block away. And convenience stores are in the top 5 targets for scum of the earth.
Will fill in details as we get them.
PS – if everyone was armed to the teeth – this shit would not happen.
