Shooting at New Jersey Truck Stop Leads to Murder Charge, Questions Remain

Union Township, NJ – New Jersey State Police (NJSP) are investigating a truck stop shooting on Saturday that left one man seriously injured and another in police custody.

Authorities responded to the Pilot Travel Center located on Route 173 in Union Township — just off of Interstate 78 — at 12:37 p.m. after reports of gunfire.


Investigators with the NJSP Troop “B” Perryville Station discovered a male who had been injured in the shooting.

He was transported to a nearby hospital with serious injuries, officials said.

A male suspect was taken into custody pending further investigation.

Authorities said they are not looking for any additional suspects at this time.

The motive for the shooting has not yet been disclosed.


Additionally, investigators have not released the identities of the men involved, so it is unclear at this time if either (or both) are truck drivers.

The investigation remains ongoing.
