Details of Shooting at New Brunswick Apartment Community in 2015, and Armed Robberies of Pizza Delivery Drivers–2013–in New Brunswick, New Jersey

The New Brunswick apartment community—the Quincy–has seemingly been viewed as a trouble-spot for crime, during the current decade: and with regards to it, the shooting that occurred on October 5th of 2015 was no exception. Three shots were fired around 9:30 pm in the evening. The information was attained from that of radio transmissions supplied by the police department. The city police quickly responded to the shooting, which occurred in the area of 33 Commercial Avenue. The response to the shooting was confirmed by Police Captain J.T. Miller. The information was provided by a spoke-person for the New Brunswick Police Department (NBPD).


After the shooting occurred, an individual arrived at the Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital—a short time later—with a wound which proved non-threatening in nature—according to Captain Miller.


Police detectives are involved in an on-going investigation of the case. The identities of the suspect and victims are being withheld due to charges which may soon follow. The shooting occurred within the approximate locale of Building #1 of the complex—again, located at 33 Commercial Avenue within the First Ward.


The two-hundred six -unit apartment community is owned by a limited liability corporation with its home-base in North Quincy, Massachusetts. It is situated across the street from the Rutgers University Police Department Headquarters.


The victim was transported to the Hospital by way of a dark-colored Honda automobile—according to transmissions of the NBPD. The suspect was described as a male, wearing a Hoodie. He fled towards Neilsen Street—according to police radio transmissions.


Also, a New Brunswick man was charged in the connection of several pizza delivery robberies. The perpetrator, Parysh Wood was linked to the armed robberies, by police, through means of cell phone data. Wood was charged with multiple armed robberies. He focused on pizza delivery drivers within the South Brunswick area; according to the South Brunswick Police Department. He has been formally charged with the robbery of a pizza delivery driver which occurred last November.


Wood also goes by the nicknames of “Pistol” and “P-Gun”. He is twenty-one years of age. Wood was charged with the November robbery while serving time in the Middlesex County Jail. Wood is serving time for other armed robberies which involved pizza delivery drivers, according to Sgt. Jim Ryan of the South Brunswick Police Department.


The most current charge occurred at 9:30 p.m. on November 30th of 2013, in the parking lot, located at Quincy Circle, in the Dayton Section of South Brunswick, NJ. An armed man demanded that the delivery driver give him his pizza and his money. The South Brunswick Police Department in working in cooperation with the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office was able to obtain data from Wood’s cellular device. They used the information in order to link him to the time of the robbery and location of the crime.


Chief Raymond Hayducka informated that the case was solved—after the crime was committed—due to the fact that investigators refused to give up in solving it. Hayducka further added that due to the digital age, many criminals will leave their digital footprint.


Justina Hampton, 19, of North Brunswick, along with Wood were arrested in January—in connection with other armed robberies of Pizza Delivery Drivers. Wood remained in the county jail. He is being held on $100,000 bail. Sgt. Ryan said he expects to see more arrests, coming from the investigation—that remains on-going.
