FREEHOLD, NJ — Detectives are asking for the public’s help in learning more about a shooting on Main Street in Asbury Park yesterday afternoon, leaving one person with minor injuries, according to the Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office.

At about 4:06 p.m. on Tuesday, May 29, Asbury Park police responded to the area of 1400 Main Street to a report of shots fired. While no victim was present at that time, officers located a 2017 Nissan Altima that had a bullet hole in the driver’s side door, said Prosecutor Christopher J. Gramiccioni in a statement.

It wasn’t until later that a male victim, who does not own the bullet-damaged car, arrived at the Neptune Township Police Department at about 5:35 p.m., suffering from a nonlife threatening gunshot wound to the leg, according to officials. He was taken to Jersey Shore University Medical Center, Neptune, for treatment.
