Monmouth County, NJ Prosecutor charges man in connection to Asbury Park, NJ shooting
An investigation into a non-fatal shooting that occurred on March 20 in Asbury Park has led to the arrest of Kenneth R. Bronson along with charges against him.
Acting Monmouth County Prosecutor Lori Linskey announced Wednesday that the 18-year old is being charged with first-degree Attempted Murder and two related second-degree weapons offenses.
Asbury Park Police were first on the call along the 100 block of Langford Street that evening, around 6:00 pm, where they found a man who was injured in the shooting.

He will remain in the Monmouth County Correctional Institution, pending a first appearance and detention hearing, which Acting Prosecutor Linskey said will take place in Monmouth County Superior Court.
