Assaulter, victims charged in Jersey City double shootings

An assailant and the two Newark brothers he is accused of shooting on Grand Street in Jersey City have all been arrested, authorities said.

Shakim Roe, 19, of Jersey City, shot and killed Corey Jamison, 18, and Esaw Jamison, 20, at 2:33 p.m. on Jan. 12, according to Jersey City Police and Criminal Complaints. Roe’s detention hearing began Monday and will continue Friday.

Jersey City spokeswoman Kimberly Wallace-Scalcione said an off-duty police officer reported gunshots in the Grand and Woodward Streets area. Jersey City Police and Complaints say Corey Jamison drove himself and his brother to Jersey City Medical Center in a stolen vehicle after the two were shot by Roe.

Police recovered the stolen vehicle and also found 33 crystal heroin sachets in the possession of Esaw Jamison, according to the complaint.

Roe was charged with unlawful possession of a weapon, possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose, two counts of aggravated assault with grievous bodily harm and other offences.

Esaw Jamison has been charged with several drug offenses including possession and possession with intent to distribute. Corey Jamison has been charged with receiving stolen property.

The violence was the second daytime shooting on Grand Street Downtown in six weeks. On December 1, two minors were shot dead in the Old Colony shopping center area.
