Divers in Bridgeton NJ Recover Gun Connected to Murder Case
It must be a little like finding a needle in a haystack, but drivers in Bridgeton have recovered a gun police say was used in a murder earlier this year.
Bridgeton Police say police detectives and divers were searching an area on Union Lake in Millville for evidence.
Divers were able to recover an Intratec Tec-9 semi-automatic pistol from the lake. Subsequent preliminary ballistic tests indicate that the gun was used in the March 16th murder of Aaliyah Eubanks in Bridgeton.
Police say they worked with investigators from the Cumberland County Prosecutor's Office and conducted the search, thanks to recently acquired leads and information in the murder case.
Police have not released any further information.
