LINDEN, NJ - Middlesex County Prosecutor Yolanda Ciccone and Director Robert Hubner of the Woodbridge Police Department announced today that four men have been charged for their involvement in a non-fatal shooting of four victims.
On July 12, 2021, at approximately 2:37 A.M., authorities responded to the Delta Suites hotel in the Iselin section of Woodbridge following the report of a shooting. At nearby hospitals, officers located four males– ages 20, 22, 23, and 25 – who were seeking treatment for apparent gunshot wounds.
An investigation by Detective Thomas Ratajczak of the Woodbridge Police Department and Detective Ryan Tighe of the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office determined Antoine Morgan, 25; Gasim Kromah, 26; Khalil Burns, 27; and Isaiah Gregory, 22, all of Linden, attended a party at a hotel room where the non-fatal shooting of the four males took place.
Although the investigation is continuing and other charges are expected, Morgan, Kromah, Burns, and Gregory were each charged with: Unlawful Possession of a Weapon, Possession of a Weapon for an Unlawful Purpose, Hindering, Obstruction, and Tampering with Evidence.
Morgan and Gregory have been arrested and are presently in custody pending a pre-trial detention hearing in Superior Court.
Kromah and Burns have been charged but have not been arrested. Kromah and Burns should be considered armed and dangerous. Anyone who see these individuals should not approach them and should immediately call the police.
The investigation is active and continuing. Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Ratajczak at (732) 634-7700 or Detective Tighe at (732) 745- 4335.
As is the case with all criminal defendants, the charges against Morgan, Kromah, Burns, and Gregory are merely accusations and they are presumed innocent until proven guilty.
