Shot Fired During Attempted Robbery in Hightstown

Police say the two men may have fled in a black car.

A gunshot was fired while two robbers attempted to steal a man’s car at the Deerfield Apartment complex Wednesday night, according to Hightstown Police.

The victim and witnesses told police a shot was fired into the air around 8:30 p.m. from a silver revolved-style handgun as the victim ran from the area, authorities said. There were no injuries and the two men may have fled in a black car, police said.

Police said the gunman was described as a black male in his late 20’s to early 30’s, about 6 feet tall with a stocky build, a “chin-strap” style beard or goatee and had short dark hair. He was wearing a white t-shirt, blue jeans, was carrying a red shirt over his shoulder and had a tribal-style tattoo on his forearm, police said.

The second man was described as a black male in his late 20’s to early 30’s, wearing a black t-shirt and cargo-style shorts, police said.  

Police are asking anyone with information on this incident to call the department at 609-448-1234.

I thought the same thing. Not hard to find that one red-head who happens to frequent deerfield. I had pointed this out many times. So scary that these people are walking right past my kids and could be holding guns. :(

How did this happen to MY one square mile of paradise? And now, who's going to fix it? Tired of wasted time on the Mill, the municipal building location, the "historical" district lighting debacle......this is our issue, and one I pray that our mayor and council will focus on.

I wonder if it could possibly take more than just finding a redhead. Not sure, but don't cops have to have some sort of evidence or proof? At least that's how they do it on Law and Order. It's been a while but I also recall something about that way back when in a Constitutional Law class in college.
