FREEHOLD – A shooting that left one person dead and two others injured in Asbury Park last night is under active investigation, Monmouth County Prosecutor Raymond S. Santiago announced Tuesday.
Just after 10:30 p.m. on Monday, July 3, members of the Asbury Park Police Department were dispatched to the Asbury Park Gardens apartment complex on Atlantic Avenue on a report of a shooting. At that location officers quickly located the three victims, all adult males who had sustained injuries.
All three individuals were rushed to a local hospital for emergency treatment. Two were found to have sustained injuries that are not believed to be life-threatening, while the third was pronounced deceased shortly after their arrival at the hospital.
The identity of the deceased is being temporarily withheld pending notification of family.
The investigation is being handled by the MCPO Major Crimes Bureau and the Asbury Park Police Department, and anyone with any information about this matter is urged to contact Prosecutor’s Office Detective Brian Migliorisi at 1-800-533-7443 or Asbury Park Police Department Detective Robert Champouillon at 732-774-1300.
