The prosecutor’s office is conducting a dual investigation with the West New York Police Department, they said in a statement.
The victim’s name has not been released yet since his family members have not yet been notified and no arrests have been made in connection to the fatal incident, authorities said.
Additionally, a law enforcement source told Hudson County View that surveillance cameras captured footage of the killing – which occurred at approximately 425 53rd Street.
The homicide marks the second in West New York in the past month. On June 5, three men were arrested in town for the beating death of 57-year-old West New York resident Moises Rivera.
