NJ.com: Newark diner shooting suspect surrenders after manhunt

David Fernandez, 26, of Newark turned himself in to the Essex County Prosecutor’s Office in connection with the fatal shooting of Jose Rivera, 39, of Newark, outside the Andros Diner.

Ending a weeklong nationwide dragnet, a Newark man wanted in the Dec. 26 killing of a nightclub bouncer gave himself up today.

After fleeing to Miami, David Fernandez, 26, came back to Newark and turned himself in to Essex County authorities at 8 a.m., police said. He was accompanied by a defense lawyer, Henry Klingeman, according to the Essex County Prosecutor’s Office.

And relief washes over the neighborhood.
