NEWARK - Essex County authorities have made an arrest in the fatal shooting of a Rutgers University student in Newark last weekend.
The county prosecutor's office says 25-year-old Marcus Feliz has been charged with murder and other offenses. He's being held on $750,000 bail.
Twenty-one-year-old Shani Patel of Toms River was fatally shot around 10 p.m. Sunday. His 23-year-old roommate also was shot and is in stable condition.
The double shooting occurred inside an off-campus apartment near Rutgers' Newark campus.
Essex County Prosecutor Carolyn Murray said Wednesday that Feliz is not affiliated with the university.
