11.04.2016 - Officers Respond to Shots Fired
On Thursday, November 3, 2016 at approximately 7:45 pm Officers responded to the Klippers Barber Shop, 221 W St George Ave, on a report of shots fired. The incident began when Daniel Vega, a 25-year-old man from Roselle, NJ, reportedly fired at least one shot outside of the business. Vega entered the business and engaged in an argument with a 33-year-old man, during which Vega pulled the handgun from his waistband and pointed it at the victim.
Responding Officers observed Vega running from the scene and pursued him until they lost sight of him on the 900 block of Dewitt Terr. Officers searched the area with the assistance of Union County Sherriff’s Office K-9 Unit and located Vega as he ran from a backyard. Vega was arrested after a brief struggle with Officers. Vega was unarmed at the time of his arrest, and no weapon was located.
