Three Blocks from My Home



A boy playing with his parent's gun shot his 11-year-old friend dead in a Jersey City home tonight, a law enforcement source with knowledge of the investigation said.

The gun belonged to a corrections officer, said the source, who requested anonymity because he is not authorized to speak about the investigation.

Hudson County Prosecutor Edward DeFazio confirmed the shooting death, but said all other details are being investigated. "We're not sure at this point whether it's an accident or a homicide," DeFazio said tonight.

The 11-year-old, who was not identified, was pronounced dead at the scene, 293 Randolph Ave., DeFazio said. The boy, who DeFazio said lived in the area, was shot at 6 p.m.
Police closed off a two-block area around Randolph Ave., next to Arlington Park, as part of its investigation. DeFazio would not confirm that the gun belonged to a corrections officer, saying only that it was part of the investigation and people are still being interviewed.

A neighbor on Randolph, who did not identify herself, said her family members were interviewed by police after the shooting. The family members told police they walked outside shortly after 6 p.m. and saw the boy lying on his back in front of a small side-door of the multi-family building.

A shooting Friday night that took the life of a 12-year-old Jersey City boy may not have been an accident, according to new details released this morning by the Hudson County Prosecutor's Office.

"The manner of death has not been established," Prosecutor Edward J. De Fazio said this morning . "It could be an accident, but at this point that has not been established."

At around 6 p.m. Friday, the boy was shot with a semi-automatic pistol issued to Shaara Green-Sims, a Hudson County Corrections officer, at the officer's home on Randolph Avenue, De Fazio said. The boy lived in the area but his relationship to Green-Sims remains unclear.

De Fazio said the crime scene indicates the boy was shot once in the chest inside Green-Sims' home . However, his body was discovered on the sidewalk outside the house. He was pronounced dead at the scene shortly after 6 p.m., De Fazio said.

"It appears that somebody removed the victim to that location," De Fazio said, adding that the boy was likely still alive when he was moved. "That, of course, is a very critical part of the investigation."

Green-Sims, 38, was home at the time of the shooting along with another child, De Fazio said. The prosecutor said is not yet certain who else was there or who fired the weapon.

"We have an indication already as to who was there, the question is was there anybody else?" De Fazio said.

Green-Sims is a 15-year veteran of the county correctional system, according to public records. Police and the prosecutor's office are still investigating.

Re: Three Blocks from My Home

Why don't parents put the guns out of reach or locked up safely.

Exactly my thought. This could have been prevented. Two families lives changed forever

Re: Three Blocks from My Home

I wonder if the kid is going to get sentenced for manslaughter or murder and if the C.O will get a manslaughter sentence because it was his gun?

Re: Three Blocks from My Home

Maybe he was moved outside to meet the ambulance or they were trying to get him to the hospital?

Probably two kids playing with the gun, but who knows, maybe the shooter got pissed, ran inside and got the gun and shot his friend?

I've been around crime scenes enough to know the media often gets it wrong.

Re: Three Blocks from My Home

Leaving a firearm in children's reach should a a felony.
