Community Reacts To Latest Shooting In Jersey City

Posted: Updated:
Jersey City, New Jersey (My9NJ) -

After the murder of Officer Melvin Santiago over the weekend, it seems the tension between the Jersey City police department and people in the community is escalating.

Monday night Jersey City police shot a man after he allegedly threw an object at a patrol car. Three officers were injured during this incident, but they are all said to be in stable medical condition.

Jersey City resident Tyreek Braxton discussed what is being talked about on the streets.

“They’re saying that someone threw something at that vehicle and I don’t believe that anyone threw anything at the vehicle because there is a big thing of retaliation going on in Jersey City. The police killed a young man two weeks ago on Grant Avenue and the young people are supposed to be retaliating with the police and the police are retaliating with the young people,” he said.

Randell Renkin said that he witnessed the shooting on Monday night and he broke down what he saw.

“The guy that got shot, they’re trying to say that he did something to the car, but he didn’t do anything to the police officers car. They were sitting in the car all ready with their machine guns, they were sitting in cuts like they were snipers. So at the same time, when a dude was walking from the light rail area that’s when they all blazed him, that’s when all you hear is shots,” he said.
