NEWARK, NJ — A Newark man was killed during a shooting in the city’s North Ward on March 13 morning.


Brunton Bissesar Singh, 55, was walking to work on the 400 block of Roseville Avenue shortly before 6 am when the fatal shots rang out, Acting Essex County Prosecutor Carolyn A. Murray and Newark Public Safety Director Anthony Ambrose said in a joint statement.
No arrests have been made, and the police have not disclosed information on any potential motive or suspects in the slaying.
An investigation by the prosecutor’s office’s Major Crimes and Homicide Task Force remains active.
The homicide is the first in Newark since February 21 when a 32-year-old Irvington man was shot and killed in the West Ward. The city’s total for the year stands at 18, according to an NJ Advance Media count.
