Star Ledger: “A night of gunshots, death in Newark”:http://www.nj.com/news/ledger/jersey/index.ssf?/base/news-9/119726596230340.xml&coll=1.
In the first, around 1 a.m. yesterday, Kalif Logan, 25, of North 13th Street was killed on Seventh Avenue. Less than an hour later, an unidentified 34-year-old Orange man was shot in the leg as he sat on a West Alpine Street porch. The last shooting, also a fatal one, occurred shortly after 3 a.m. on Summer Avenue when Segundo Sanchez, 43, was trying to leave his apartment after fighting with a brother.
Although the homicides moved the city’s 2007 number to 94, that’s still down from 100 for the same time period last year, said Detective Todd McClendon, a Newark police spokesman.
