“The preliminary investigation suggests that Mr. Williams shot multiple times at two individuals,” New Brunswick Police Capt. J.T. Miller wrote in a press release, “stemming from an argument inside the Court Tavern earlier in the evening.”

The victims were leaving the music venue when they were shot, according to city cops.

Police identified the victims as Charlton Stevens, a 23-year-old Hackensack resident, and Emyle Duverger, a 25-year-old Brooklyn resident. Both men were shot in the legs and taken to Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital for non-fatal injuries.

Police charged Williams with attempted murder, aggravated assault, unlawful possession of a handgun and possession of a handgun for an unlawful purpose.

People with information on the shooting should call New Brunswick Police Det. Erika DiMarcello at 732-735-5217.
