Woman Injured and Man Killed in Shooting

Moorestown New Jersey Gun Crime Criminal Defense LawyerA gun is a powerful weapon to wield. To be shot could mean death or an injury that plagues you for the rest of your life. Unfortunately, death was the result of a recent shooting that took place in Jersey City. A 19-year-old man died after being shot in the torso outside of an apartment. A 21-year-old woman suffered an injury to her arm in the shooting. Police were called a little before 10 p.m. and made aware of a shooting. When they arrived, they determined the man had been shot outside the apartment and made his way inside before collapsing. He was pronounced dead at the scene. The woman ended up getting transported to a local medical center where she was treated. Her injury was not believed to be life-threatening. Officials did not have any suspects immediately following the shooting and it is under investigation.

Violent Crimes Carry Serious Penalties

Committing a violent crime has serious consequences in New Jersey. Throw the use of a weapon into the mix and those penalties can be much worse. For instance, murder in the first degree is a very serious offense. If convicted, you could face a minimum of 30 years in prison with the possibility of life. In some circumstances, you will not get the opportunity of parole. Sometimes, murder is not the intended crime. Maybe your intent was only to harm the victim but they ended up dying anyway. This means you would be facing the same serious penalties as murder.

These types of offenses can land you in jail, which will greatly impact your livelihood until the time of your sentence. You will also have to deal with the label you will receive for your crime. This can make it difficult to lead a normal life even after you serve your sentence. That is why it is imperative to consult a strong criminal defense attorney if you are facing charges.
