A Linden man has been charged with attempted murder following a non-fatal shooting at a local hotel.

On July 12, at approximately 2:37 a.m., authorities responded to the Delta Suites hotel in the Iselin section of Woodbridge following the report of a shooting.

At nearby hospitals, officers located four males– ages 20, 22, 23 and 25 – who were seeking treatment for apparent gunshot wounds, according to information provided by Middlesex County Prosecutor Yolanda Ciccone and Director Robert Hubner of the Woodbridge Police Department.

An investigation by Detective Thomas Ratajczak of the Woodbridge Police Department, Detective Ryan Tighe of the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office, determined Antoine Morgan, 25; Gasim Kromah, 26; Khalil Burns, 27; and Isaiah Gregory, 22, all of Linden, reportedly attended a party at a hotel room where the non-fatal shooting of the four males took place.

Morgan, Kromah, Burns and Gregory were previously charged with weapons offenses in connection with the shooting, according to the statement.

On Aug. 10, Burns was arrested in Woodbridge by members of the New Jersey State Police Fugitive Task Force, the U.S. Marshals Service Fugitive Task Force, and the Woodbridge Police Department and charged with two counts of attempted murder, according to the statement. The Linden Police Department also provided considerable assistance throughout the investigation.

Burns is presently lodged in the Middlesex County Adult Correction Center ending a pre-trial detention hearing in Superior Court.

The investigation is active and continuing. Anyone with information should call Ratajczak at 732-634-7700 or Tighe at 732-745-4335.
