Teen Sought in Shooting at Bridgeton Home That Injured Five
BRIDGETON, N.J. (AP) — Authorities have identified a suspect sought in a recent shooting at a home that left five people injured. Bridgeton police say 18-year-old Brian Pineda is wanted on aggravated assault and weapons counts. They say he's considered armed and "extremely dangerous." The charges stem from a shooting that occurred Thursday at a Marion Street home. Police say Pineda opened fire on a group of people who were sitting on the porch. They say he then fled through an alleyway and eventually drove off in a car with Pennsylvania license plates. A motive for the shooting remains under investigation. Authorities say Pineda fired numerous shots, but they have not said what type of weapon was used. Authorities declined to provide further details about the five victims or the injuries they suffered. Anyone who may have information about Pineda's whereabouts is asked to call the Bridgeton Police Department at 856.451.0033.
