While details are scarce at the moment, the Hudson County Prosecutor’s Office has confirmed the third fatal shooting of the month in the Greenville section of Jersey City.
“The Hudson County Prosecutor’s Office Homicide Unit is investigating the fatal shooting of a male on New Street in Jersey City. More information to follow,” they tweeted this morning.
The shooting comes days after a 17-year-old Ferris High School student was shot and killed outside of a convenience store and less than three weeks after a 23-year-old Bayonne man was shot and killed on Lembeck Avenue near Ocean Avenue.
No arrests have been reported in the death of Jayden Fondeur, the student who was killed when shots rang out Tuesday evening.
His wake is scheduled for tomorrow evening with a funeral mass scheduled for Tuesday.
His family has started a GoFundMe campaign to help pay for his funeral.
