BAYONNE, NJ - A Bayonne man was arrested on Wednesday and charged with possession of an unregistered handgun.

According to Lt. Eric Amato, Gregory D. Moylan, 39, was arrested in the area of 30th Street and Kennedy Blvd at approximately 12:50 p.m. after he was identified as the individual who unlawfully stored a handgun inside of an apartment at 50 Kennedy Boulevard.

The report continued that on Sunday a resident of that residence attempted to move the handgun to a different location within the apartment when she accidentally discharged it shooting through the wall into an adjacent apartment.

While no one was injured in that incident it was determined through an investigation that the weapon was not registered and that Moylan possessed it unlawfully.
