Who is Braylin Holmes?
A third person died Saturday night after a gunman opened fire at a house party in Cumberland County, New Jersey.
Braylin Holmes, 19, died Monday night as a result of the shooting. This comes from a press release from the New Jersey Attorney General.
Holmes was the youngest and the most seriously injured of the 12 people who were taken to the hospital on Saturday, according to FOX29.
Causes of death
Two other victims, a 30-year-old man and a 25-year-old woman, were found dead at the scene, the New Jersey State Police said in a Facebook statement Sunday. Holmes has not been identified at the time, but police said “one of the 12 confirmed victims has been seriously injured and is in critical condition.”
So far, two people have been arrested in connection with the shooting, but neither have been identified by police as suspected attackers, according to the Attorney General.
The shooting took place around 11:50 p.m. Local time at a residence on East Commerce Street in Fairfield Township.
Melissa Helmbrecht, an employee of Hopeloft, a local advocacy group for at-risk youth, told NBC10 that several members of the group were celebrating when the shooting occurred.
“There were hundreds of people, our neighbors, who came together because it was a very warm and pleasant first night,” Helmbrecht said. “There were a lot of parties and gatherings throughout the community, and it was probably the biggest.”
In a statement, Gov. Phil Murphy said he was “grateful for the quick response of the police” to the shooting and urged the public to help the police if he has information about the shooting.
Make no mistake: this cowardly and cowardly act of gun violence only reaffirms our commitment to ensuring that New Jersey uses common sense to lead the nation in passing strict safety laws. “No church should see what happened last night in Fairfield.”
