JERSEY CITY -- In the 14th homicide in Jersey City this year, a 21-year-old city man was killed Sunday morning in the city's Greenville section.
Hudson County Prosecutor Edward DeFazio said Bryle Brooks of Dales Avenue was found dead around 1:30 a.m. in front of 30 Martin Luther King Drive. DeFazio said Brooks was shot at least three times, with bullets landing in his head, arm and neck.
DeFazio said no motive has been "definitively determined." He said some information received so far indicate that it "may or may not be gang-related."
DeFazio said numerous witnesses have been interviewed in the ongoing investigation. Anyone with information on the shooting can call the Hudson County Prosecutor's Office Homicide Unit at (201) 915-1345.
Although 14 homicides have occurred so far this year, that number is less than this time last year. See below for links to recent articles on crime in Jersey City. - RK
