Twyshon Depew, 26, was shot and killed in New Jersey last week, according to a press release from the Passaic County Prosecutor’s Office.
The incident took place Thursday around 9 p.m. when police responded to Paterson for reports of a shooting, the release said. Paterson is about 15 miles north of Newark.
When officers arrived on scene they found evidence of a shooting and were told the victim, Depew, was taken to a local hospital in a private vehicle with gunshot wounds. Depew died at the hospital, the release said.
The prosecutor’s office is investigating the shooting as a homicide, the release said.
“No arrests have been made at this time, however the investigation is still active and ongoing,” Passaic County Prosecutor Jason Statuto told CNN Monday.
