In the last ten days, we’ve had three homicides within a small area along Mount Prospect Avenue. Our prayers are with the families of the victims.
These violent events occurring so close together within such a short time period are not typical for our community. The assailants in these incidents appear to have targeted their victims based on initial reports. The Essex County Prosecutor’s Office is investigating these crimes and will report progress soon.
