UPDATE: One shot dead inside Manalapan home, cops say
MANALAPAN — Details are few about a "criminal investigation" in a Monmouth County neighborhood on Saturday night that left one person dead.
Manalapan police issued a warning on their Twitter account about an "active criminal investigation going on in area of Pension Road and Union Hill Road."
Monmouth County Prosecutor's Office spokesman Chris Swendeman said police responding to a call at 25 Fawn Run for a fight was followed several minutes later by a call for a shooting and found Narciso Rodriguez-Corona, 43, suffering from a gunshot wound. Rodriguez was hospitalized and was pronounced dead, Swendeman said.
According to Swendeman, Rodriguez-Corona did not live at the home in the Union Hill section of Manalapan.
Swendeman said the shooting appears to be an isolated incident and there is no danger to the public. He would not disclose if any arrests have been made, suspects named, a motive for the shooting or if anyone else was in the house at the time citing the ongoing investigation.
Don Gorrell in his response to the tweet by Manalapan police said he heard 3-5 shots around 9:30 p.m. and then 5-10 shots a few minutes later.
"I assumed fireworks until I looked outside and saw the police," Gorrell wrote in his response.
Other residents responding to the tweet reported a large police presence in the Union Hill neighborhood.
Police told RLS Metro Breaking News that suspects were taken into custody after the shooting.
Manalapan police referred all questions about the case to the Prosecutor's Office.
Note: An earlier version of this post identified the deceased by a misspelled name provided at the time by the Monmouth County Prosecutor's Office. The prosecutor's office has issued a correction.
