Freehold Man Charged in Fatal Asbury Park Shooting
Prosecutors say a gunman fatally shot a Connecticut man and wounded another person after they argued on a central New Jersey street.
Thirty-year-old Jamar Walker of Freehold was charged Friday with murder, attempted murder and weapons offenses stemming from Thursday night’s shootings in Asbury Park. His bail was set at $1.5 million, and it’s not known if he has an attorney.
Authorities say 30-year-old Orlando Rowe of Bridgeport and 23-year-old Daquin Calhoun of Freehold were each shot “multiple times.” A city police officer heard the shots and responded to the scene, where the victims were found lying on the ground.
Rowe died at a hospital, while Calhoun remained hospitalized Friday in stable condition
Prosecutors didn’t say what the men argued about and declined to provide further details on the shootings.
