FREEHOLD – A Neptune City man who was involved in two separate shooting incidents in Asbury Park has been arrested, Monmouth County Prosecutor Raymond S. Santiago announced on Thursday.
Kwalsky Narcisse, 24, of Neptune City is charged with two counts of first-degree Attempted Murder, one count of first-degree Conspiracy to Commit Murder, one count of second-degree Possession of a Weapon for an Unlawful Purpose, two counts of second-degree Unlawful Possession of a Weapon, one count of second-degree Certain Persons Not to Possess a Weapon, one count of third-degree Hindering Apprehension of Oneself, and one count of third-degree Theft.
On October 1, 2021, at approximately 11:30 p.m., officers from the Asbury Park Police Department responded to shots fired near the Prospect Avenue Basketball Courts. An investigation revealed that a struggle ensued in the area and continued through the 100 block of Prospect Avenue, but no victims were injured. Narcisse was later identified as the shooter in that incident.
On May 11, 2023, at approximately 1:14 a.m., members of the Asbury Park Police Department responded to a report of shots fired in the area of the 100 block of Ridge Avenue. The investigation revealed that a home in that area was struck by a single gunshot. The home was occupied at the time of the shooting. The investigation further revealed that the occupants of a 2018 Kia Optima were seen fleeing the scene following the shooting. It was later determined that the vehicle had been stolen and that Narcisse was responsible for the shots-fired incident.
Narcisse was located and arrested without incident by members of the MCPO and the U.S. Marshals Service New York/New Jersey Regional Fugitive Task Force.
