ROSELLE – Mayor Jamel Holley will hold a Town Hall Meeting to address recent incidents of gun violence in Roselle tomorrow, Tuesday, March 13, at 7 p.m. The location has been changed to Abraham Clark High School, 122 East 6th Avenue in Roselle, in order to accommodate the large amount of residents who have shown interest in attending and making their voices heard.
Holley has invited residents to join together and create a dialogue about violence while also having any questions or concerns about the investigation addressed. Union County Prosecutor Theodore J. Romankow, Union County Sheriff Ralph Froehlich, Roselle Police Chief Jerry Orlando and members of both the Borough Council and Police Department will also be in attendance.
“Roselle will not stand for this kind of senseless violence,” said Holley, who began his term as the youngest mayor in borough history in January. “I’m inviting our entire community to come together and make it known that we will not tolerate shootings and killings here in our home. The perpetrators of this horrible act of violence will be found and prosecuted to the full extent of the law.”
Roselle residents Breyon Williams and Anthony Howard, both 24, were fatally shot outside a Walnut Street residence on March 8.
Roselle resident Damel Mitchell, 17, was shot and killed at the Sylvester Land Field off Columbus Avenue on Feb. 20. Three suspects – 18-year-old Nyfee Mallory of Roselle and two 17-year-olds – were arrested and charged in Mitchell’s death on Feb. 22.
