A second juvenile, this time a 16-year-old male, was arrested in connection with a shooting on Lanes Mill Road last week, just blocks from Brick Memorial High School.
According to a joint statement from Brick police and the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office, video surveillance footage from homes around the shooting led investigators to learn that a second person was involved in the shooting. He turned himself into the Brick Township Police Department Saturday afternoon, and will be transported to the Ocean County Juvenile Detention Center pending a hearing.
“With the apprehension of this juvenile, law enforcement is confident that all suspects associated with this shooting incident are now in custody,” the statement said.
The teen, whose name and photo were not released, is charged with four counts of attempted murder, possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose, and unlawful possession of a weapon. Police already arrested a 17-year-old who is facing the same charges and is in custody at the juvenile detention center.
The Oct. 22 shooting wounded a 16-year-old male who was walking along Lanes Mill Road near New York Avenue. The victim is expected to fully recover.
