Around 8:30 p.m. on June 26, police responded to shots fired in the 600 block of Salem Avenue in Elizabeth.

Inside the same parked vehicle, officers found Edouard, a 23-year-old woman and a 3-year-old girl, all shot.

Edouard was pronounced dead at a local hospital, while the female victims were treated and then listed in stable condition.

The prosecutor’s office did not disclose the relationship between the gunshot victims.

According to his obituary, Eduard was survived by his own son and parents, as well as siblings, nieces and nephews, a girlfriend and her daughter, among other loved ones.

A joint investigation involving municipal and county law enforcement led to the arrests of Daniels and Gray.
