Greenwich Township, Warren County, N.J. - The New Jersey State Police is investigating an incident where a suspect shot and injured a woman on Interstate 78 in Greenwich Township earlier today.
At 5:57 a.m., troopers from Troop “B” Perryville Station were dispatched to the Exit 6 off ramp on Interstate 78 for the report of a shooting. When they arrived, the female victim was conscious and alert inside her vehicle. She sustained three gunshot wounds, which were to her head, hand and chest. She was treated at the scene before being taken to an area hospital where she was last listed in stable condition.
Detectives believe that the shooting may have been the result of an incident that occurred between the victim and the unknown suspect motorist on Interstate 78 east between Exit 75 (Morgan Hill Road) in Easton, PA and Exit 6 in New Jersey. Detectives also believe that a white male wearing dark clothing was at the scene in Greenwich Township prior to fleeing in a dark-colored sedan.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the New Jersey State Police Perryville Station at 908-730-7042. Anonymous tips are welcome.
This is an active investigation, and there is no additional information available at this time.
