New Jersey Murder-Suicide
Isaiah Cobb was discovered at what authorities believe to be a New Jersey murder-suicide scene. He was suffering from gunshot wounds, and sadly, was pronounced dead shortly after at 11:45 p.m.
Another victim, Terrance Carroll, was also found with gunshot injuries and was rushed to University Hospital. Tragically, Carroll succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced dead the following day at 12:13 a.m.
The investigation has revealed a disturbing sequence of events. Authorities believe that Carroll, allegedly fueled by jealousy, shot Cobb while he sat in his car.
Carroll had parked his vehicle across the street and waited there throughout the night. After shooting Cobb, Carroll proceeded to his apartment, where he tragically took his own life with a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.
Carroll’s wife, who was present during the incident, also sustained injuries and is currently receiving medical evaluation at a local hospital.
