RAHWAY – Authorities are still investigating last month’s death of a 27-year-old Newark man outside a Rahway nightclub. Union County Crime Stoppers is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to an arrest and indictment in the case.
Shortly after 3:05 a.m. on Sunday, Nov. 10, officers responding to a report of shots fired in the area of the Breathless nightclub on Hart Street found Jorge Torres, the victim of a gunshot wound, in a vehicle parked outside the bar’s entrance, according to Homicide Task Force Supervisor Michael Henn.
