Killed – Eric Andrews (Somerset, NJ)

Eric Andrews

SOMERSET – Two brothers are being sought in the killing of a rapper who was shot to death last weekend at a Franklin Township hair salon.

Somerset County prosecutors say 21-year-old Zaire Cromedy, of New Brunswick, and 28-year-old Antwan Cromedy, of Bound Brook, both face first-degree murder charges in the death of 28-year-old Eric Andrews Jr., whose stage name was E-9.

The charges were announced today, along with a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to the whereabouts and arrests of both suspects.

The murder charges stem from the shooting that occurred just before 6 p.m. Sunday inside the Nu Trendz Hair Salon. Authorities say the men began arguing and the dispute soon turned physical.

Andrews was taken to a hospital, where he died a short time later.

Triple Murder – Killed – Female Teen – Zainee Hailey (Newark, NJ)

Zainee Hailey

NEWARK — One of the teenage victims of a Christmas night shooting in Newark was a 13-year-old girl taking out the trash, a law enforcement source said today.

Zainee Hailey, 13, was killed while taking garbage out of her Schley Street house, the source said. She was a student at Bragaw Avenue Elementary School in Newark.

Also killed was Kasson Morman, 15, a resident of North Seventh Street in Newark, the source said. Mormon was a student at Central High School in Newark.

A third teenager was also injured in the shooting. The source did not identify him, but said the teenager is a 14-year-old student at Weequahic High School in Newark.

NEWARK — A 15-year-old boy has pleaded guilty to fatally shooting three teenagers on a Newark street on Christmas night last year, a spokeswoman for the Essex County Prosecutor’s Office said.

The boy pleaded guilty on Monday in juvenile court in connection with the murders of Zainee Hailey, Kasson Morman and Abdul Frazier, said Katherine Carter, spokeswoman for the prosecutor’s office.

Under the terms of a plea agreement, he faces up to 40 years in prison when he is sentenced, Carter said. But Carter said juveniles are sentenced to what is called an “indeterminate term,” meaning the parole board can release him when it determines he is rehabilitated.

The boy opened fire in the 100 block of Schley Street, because he felt “disrespected” after one of the boys apparently hit on his girlfriend, law enforcement sources have said.

Hailey, 13, was gunned down as she and her younger brother carried trash bags to the street from her family’s third-floor apartment. Hailey and Morman, 15, died shortly after the attack, and Frazier, 14, died from his injuries a few weeks later.

NEWARK — The third teenager shot on a South Ward street on Christmas night died early this morning in the hospital, authorities said,

Abdul Frazier, 14, was one of the three teenagers shot on Schley Street. He has spent the past three weeks at University Hospital where he died at 4:57 a.m. today, said Thomas Fennelly, the chief assistant Essex County Prosecutor.

The innocent Newark girl died in a hail of bullets intended for somebody else after she and her 7-year-old brother carried the holiday trash to the curb, authorities and neighbors said.

A visitor, Kasson Morman, 15, was also slain when the gunfire erupted around 10 p.m. Wednesday, while a 14-year-old boy was shot but survived — critically wounded with a bullet lodged in his spine.
