Paterson murder suspect arrested in Middlesex County, authorities say

Naszhere Jones

A man wanted for murder in Paterson was arrested in Old Bridge in Middlesex County by the U.S. Marshall’s Fugitive Task Force on Friday morning, according to the Passaic County Prosecutor’s Office.

Naszhere M. Jones, 22-year-old, of South Hackensack, has been charged with murder, weapons offenses, and numerous drug offenses.

Jones allegedly killed 35-year-old Jaquan Harrison on North 6th and Clinton streets in Paterson on March 3. Harrison was found shot inside a building in the area. He was taken to a hospital, but died from his injuries four days later.

Jones remained a fugitive for the past four months.

Law enforcement officers from the U.S. Marshall’s Fugitive Task Force, the Passaic County Sheriff’s Department, the Passaic County Prosecutor’s Office, and the Old Bridge Police Department arrested Jones at around 7:30 a.m. outside of 901 Westminster Boulevard in Old Bridge.

Jones was there attempting to enter his vehicle and ran on foot when he saw law enforcement officers. He was subsequently arrested without an incident. A firearm with a high-capacity magazine, crack cocaine, and heroin were found inside his vehicle, authorities said.

Jones could face decades behind bars if found guilty on the charges.

    This young black inspiring man deserves a second chance. We're these racist police.officers nice to him? Did these officers simply approach him because he was black? Did these officers have a search warrant to search his car? This all smells like racism to me. I tell this young black man to not let this racist system keep him from reaching the goals.he was pursuing. Keep up the good work young black man.

      lol. I'm sure if someone killed your mother or father you'd say the same thing. If he's a fugitive he obviously has warrants. smh. What goals was he pursing street pharmacists or hit man or murderer ? What was so inspiring about him ?
