October 28, 2020

SEASIDE PARK, NJ (OCEAN)–Ocean County Prosecutor Bradley D. Billhimer announced that a 17 year-old juvenile was taken into custody last night in connection with a shooting that occurred on October 27, 2020, in Seaside Park. The juvenile has been charged with Attempted Murder in violation of N.J.S.A. 2C:5-1 and N.J.S.A. 2C11-3; Aggravated Assault in violation of N.J.S.A. 2C:12-1b(3); Robbery in violation of N.J.S.A. 2C:15-1; Possession of a Weapon For an Unlawful Purpose in violation of N.J.S.A. 2C:39-4a; and Unlawful Possession of a Weapon in violation of N.J.S.A. 2C:39-5b(1).

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. A warrant for the juvenile’s arrest was executed by the Ocean County Regional SWAT Team, and the juvenile was taken into custody without incident. The juvenile was processed at Seaside Park Police Headquarters, and is currently lodged at the Ocean County Juvenile Detention Center.

Prosecutor Billhimer is grateful for the hard work and collaborative efforts of all law enforcement personnel involved in this comprehensive investigation leading to the juvenile’s apprehension, including the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office Major Crime Unit, Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office Regional SWAT Team, Seaside Park Police Department, Seaside Heights Police Department, and Ocean County Sheriff’s Office Crime Scene Investigation Unit. “All the officers involved in this investigation worked at breakneck speed to identify and apprehend the individual responsible for this senseless act of violence, for which I am extremely grateful. 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.

Whale Off Seaside Park Breached Surface And Lands On Boat, Boat Now Beached

June 8, 2020

SEASIDE PARK, NJ (0CEAN)–From Friends Of Seaside Park:

Happening now: a whale breached the surface and landed on a boat only a few dozen yards off D Street. The boat is now beached on the shores. We saw the whole thing unfold.

Update:
For those asking, both occupants are okay they were both thrown from the boat. The 🐋 whale kept swimming and breaching. From our view, the whale is totally fine. Appeared to be a humpback.

For those asking for a time frame, it happened around 11:50 am and it was on the trailer at around 3:30pm.

Also it’s World Oceans Day!!!
