I knew it would happen soon enough, A man dressed as a clown was shot in the city’s West Ward last night. The shooting was reported just after 10:30 p.m. by Vailsburg Park.
A spokesperson for the Newark Police Department said a silver SUV, driven by an African-American male, pulled up alongside of the clown. According to the spokesperson’s statement, the man got out of the car and fired several shots. The man then got back in the SUV and headed north on the Garden State Parkway.
The victim, who has been identified as Carlos Mendoza, 31, was transported to University Hospital were he was pronounced dead. The suspect in the shooting has not be identified however authorities are actively searching for his whereabouts.
Of all places Newark’s really not where I’d be messing around dressed up as a clown. LOL
