“The violence this summer on the streets of Asbury Park and Neptune Township cannot be tolerated – law-abiding citizens of these communities cannot be forced to live in fear of these gun-toting criminals," Prosecutor Gramiccioni said. "No one should live in fear to walk on public streets outside your home. Our office will track down these criminals, we will find them and get them off the streets where they do the most damage to families, friends, and neighborhoods."

The case is assigned to Monmouth County Assistant Prosecutors Matthew Bogner and Ashley Behre.

There have been a significant number of gun-related incidents in Asbury Park and Neptune Township this year resulting in two murders, another 13 shooting incidents that resulted in serious bodily injury, 15 confirmed shots-fired incidents, another 13 reports of shots-fired incidents that could not be substantiated and the seizure of 37 handguns and one semi-automatic AK-47 replica rifle.

The latest shootings took place early Monday morning on Prospect Avenue in Asbury Park that left a 23-year-old male and a 51-year-old male, both of Asbury Park, with non-life-threatening injuries, and a shots fired incident on Sunday evening in the area of Mattison and Atkins avenues.
