Earlier today, members of the United States Marshals Service New York/New Jersey Regional Fugitive Task Force arrested a Newark man wanted in connection with the 2021 triple shooting that killed Raven Harris and injured two others in Jersey City, Suarez said in a statement

Jimmy Colclough, 31, is charged with murder, two counts of attempted murder, two counts of unlawful possession of a weapon, and possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose.

He was arrested at a hotel on Paterson Plank Road in Carlstadt and is being held at the Hudson County Correctional Facility pending his first court appearance.

On Wednesday, February 10th, 2021, just before 10:00 p.m., members of the Jersey City Police Department responded to a report of shots fired in the area of Old Bergen Road and Neptune Avenue.

Responding officers found three shooting victims, a 30-year-old Jersey City woman – later identified as Raven Harris – as well as two male victims, ages 28 and 29.

The three victims were transported by Emergency Medical Services to Jersey City Medical Center and Harris was pronounced dead at approximately 10:30 p.m.

The Northern Regional Medical Examiner’s Office determined the cause of death to be Multiple Gunshot Wounds and the manner of death to be Homicide. The two men, who were initially in critical condition, were treated for their injuries and released.

Colclough had been identified as the shooting suspect by the HCPO back in October.

Suarez credited the United States Marshals Service New York/New Jersey Regional Fugitive Task Force, the HCPO’s Homicide and Gang Intelligence Units, and the Jersey City Police Department with the arrest and investigation.
