According to police, several shots were fired and one struck the 30-year-old man in the head. After firing the deadly shot, both assailants got in the 2012 silver Range Rover and sped off. The man, who remains unidentified, was rushed to a local hospital and pronounced dead at 11:35 p.m. that night. His wife was not injured.
Cops have now set an alert out for the Range Rover with the license plate U26BVD.
This is so incredibly heartbreaking. This man was just going about his business, doing absolutely nothing wrong, and yet, his life was taken in cold blood for no reason other than he happened to have a nice car. It's such a horrific and senseless act of violence.
My heart breaks thinking of his poor wife. Losing a loved one is shattering enough, so I can't even begin to imagine how devastated and traumatized she must feel having actually witnessed his death... and right before the holidays too. My prayers go out to her and all of theirloved ones. I only hope authorities find the two monsters that did this as soon as possible so that justice can be served.
UPDATE: The victim was identified as Hoboken, New Jersey attorney Dustin Friedland, who died defending his beloved wife Jamie. The silver Range Rover was reportedly found in Newark, New Jersey, and a reward is being offered for the assailant's capture.
