Double shooting leaves one dead and one injured in Red Bank

According to prosecutors, one person was killed and another injured in a shooting in Red Bank last night.

They say the incident occurred in the 100 block of River Street.

“Boom, boom, boom,” said a neighbor. “It’s three in the morning, the shot woke me up, I ran out. It’s a nice community, my mother lived here for years. It’s the first time something has happened on this street,” he said.

Police are searching for a suspect. They do not believe there is an ongoing threat to the public.

An intense police investigation took place on River Street and Leighton Avenue. News 12 New Jersey saw a victim being taken from the property on a stretcher. Most of River Street remains closed while the Monmouth County District Attorney’s Office investigates.

There is no information yet on how the victim was killed. Details of the events surrounding the murder have not been released and the identity of the victim has not been confirmed.
