The New Brunswick Police Department (NBPD) recently arrested a suspect involved in a previous shooting in New Brunswick, according to a University-wide email alert.
The suspect, 19-year-old Jeron Pitt of Somerset, was arrested and charged on Friday following an investigation conducted by the NBPD and the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office, according to the email.
Pitt is facing several charges, including two counts of murder and seven counts of attempted murder, as well as conspiracy and weapons offenses, according to the email.
The Daily Targum previously reported the incident took place at approximately 1:30 a.m. on Sept. 13, 2020, at 32 Delafield St. Four individuals, including the suspect, shot at a group of individuals at a house party, which left two people dead and six people with serious injuries, according to the Targum.
