FRANKLIN TOWNSHIP (Somerset) — One person is dead after a shooting Saturday night after which at least one victim was found inside a car that drove into a house.
Police told RLS Metro Breaking News a car drove into a house on Foxwood Drive around 11 p.m. with one person trapped inside the vehicle with a bullet wound.
Somerset County Prosecutor Michael H. Robertson said Dominic J. Frederick, 25, of Franklin Township was shot near Petty Road but continued driving for several blocks until he lost consciousness and crashed into the house. He was pronounced dead at the scene, according to Robertson.
The vehicle was described by police as being "severely damaged."
There were an undisclosed number of other people in the vehicle, according to Robertson, who said reports of a second person in the vehicle being shot as incorrect.
It was the second fatal shooting in the township in a week.
In a separate incident, Police still are looking for whoever fired multiple shots into a large gathering at Naaman Williams Park around 11 p.m. on Saturday, May 18, that left David D. Anderson of Franklin Township dead, according to the Prosecutor's Office.
Anderson was taken by private vehicle to a hospital, where he died from from his injuries, authorities said.
