On October 27, 2020, at approximately 11:45 a.m., the Seaside Park Police Department responded to the area of I Street in response to a 911 call for a reported shooting. Responding Officers were met by witnesses to the shooting; a short time later, a white BMW pulled up to a marked Seaside Heights Police vehicle in the Borough of Seaside Heights and advised that one of the passengers was the victim of the shooting. The victim was taken to Jersey Shore Medical Center in Neptune, treated for injuries, and released. Following a thorough investigation by the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office Major Crime Unit, Seaside Park Police Department, Seaside Heights Police Department and the Ocean County Sheriff’s Office, the subject juvenile was identified as the shooter.

As I have stated on numerous occasions, this unbridled lawlessness – whether perpetrated by an adult or a juvenile – will not be tolerated in Ocean County,” Prosecutor Billhimer stated.

The press and public are reminded that all defendants are presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
