Hudson County prosecutors say a 30-year-old man has been sentenced to 71 years in state prison for shooting four people — killing one of them — at a North Bergen home three years ago.

Jonathan Haughey-Morales, of West New York, was sentenced on Tuesday to 50 years for the murder of 40-year-old Carlos Garcia.

He also received three consecutive, seven-year terms for aggravated assault — one for each surviving victim of the May 5, 2019 mass shooting, Hudson County Prosecutor Esther Suarez announced.

The other two men and one woman were rushed for treatment at a local hospital following the early morning incident.

Haughey-Morales was found with gunshot wounds himself a day later, roughly 95 miles away in Pennsylvania, authorities previously confirmed.

He was convicted on all charges by a jury on March 2, following a two-week trial.

Under the No Early Release Act, Haughey-Morales must serve at least 42 and a half years of the 50-year sentence — as well as roughly 18 years of the other three, consecutive sentences.

Every NJ city and town's municipal tax bill, ranked

A little less than 30 cents of every $1 in property taxes charged in New Jersey support municipal services provided by cities, towns, townships, boroughs and villages. Statewide, the average municipal-only tax bill in 2021 was $2,725, but that varied widely from more than $13,000 in Tavistock to nothing in three townships. In addition to $9.22 billion in municipal purpose taxes, special taxing districts that in some places provide municipal services such as fire protection, garbage collection or economic development levied $323.8 million in 2021.
