Edison Police Searching for Gunman in Early Morning Shooting


EDISON, NJ  – (June 21, 2016) – Police are searching for a gunman wanted in connection with the shooting of a 29-year-old man early this morning in the parking lot outside a Truman Drive apartment complex.

The victim, a tenant at the Kilmer Homes Apartments, was shot once in the chest. He underwent emergency surgery to remove the bullet earlier today at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick. He is listed in stable condition in the hospital's intensive care unit.

Officers were dispatched to the apartment complex at 117 Truman Drive just before 12:45 a.m. after the victim's wife dialed 911, saying she was awakened by her injured husband's calls for help outside their apartment's front door, police Lt. Robert Dudash said.

The woman told police she found him bleeding from a gunshot wound before he collapsed onto their apartment floor, where he was found by responding Officers Michael Haley, Daniel Bradley, Brian Freund, Timothy Hutson, Matthew Mieczkowski and Lt. Jason Gerba.

Officers searched the apartment building, its grounds and streets in the area for the gunman to no avail. Detective William Colletto reported finding several shell casings in the street outside and bullet holes in the victim's gray Acura TL, parked in a lot outside his building, Dudash said.

Police are working with the Middlesex County Prosecutor's Office to find the gunman involved in this shooting. Anyone with information is asked to contact Edison Detective Michael Michalski at (732) 248-7525.
