NEW BRUNSWICK – A Middlesex County grand jury has handed up an indictment against a Plainfield man who is accused of killing a Rahway resident outside a Piscataway bowling alley in November.
Tywan Cobb, 29, is accused of fatally shooting Quadeer Hall, 26, on Nov. 1, 2009, outside Stelton Lanes, a bowling alley on Stelton Road in Piscataway, according to authorities. Unidentified bystanders brought Hall into the bowling alley and administered first aid, and police arrived after a number of 911 calls were made at 12:45 a.m. Hall was taken to Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick, where he was pronounced dead at 1:30 a.m., authorities said.
Authorities have not released many details about the killing, declining to discuss a motive or whether the murder weapon was found. Middlesex County Assistant Prosecutor Nicholas Sewitch said that Cobb and Hall were believed to be acquaintances.
Cobb has pleaded not guilty to the charges. He is being held at Middlesex County Adult Correction Center in North Brunswick in lieu of $750,000 bail.
Cobb had been sentenced to state prison in April 2005 for weapons charges, according to records from the state Department of Corrections. He was released on parole in April 2008, but was arrested again on a warrant in June 2008 and was placed in a halfway house until completing the sentence on Dec. 24, 2008, according to records.
