Re.:  Williamstown man arrested in shooting


Mark McKenna  (DOB 1/12/63), of Williamstown NJ was arrested this afternoon  (2/14) by officers of the Gloucester County Prosecutor’s Office Fugitive Investigation Unit and Monroe Township police on charges of firing a gun into an occupied car in Williamstown on Tuesday  (2/13).


The arrest occurred without incident at a Walter Ave. residence. McKenna is to be turned over to the Gloucester County Sheriff’s Office for transportation to jail pending a detention hearing.


McKenna is charged with aggravated assault, specifically by firing a weapon into a vehicle with three occupants. According to a criminal complaint, the bullet entered a passenger window, lodging in the windshield.  It did not strike the occupants.


The other charges the Monroe Township Police Department has signed against McKenna:  possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose; unlawful possession of a weapon; criminal mischief and possession of a weapon by a convicted person.


The shooting Tuesday resulted in activation of the Gloucester County Special Weapons and Tactics unit at McKenna’s Herbert Blvd. residence.  He was not found there.
