Two Men Charged with Fatal Shooting on Seaman Street Still At-Large

NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ—Authorities are still searching for New Brunswick residents Jonathan Rodriguez, 21, and Steven Perez, 19, two of the three men charged with the murder of Raheem Fuqua.

Fuqua was fatally shot in front of his house on Seaman Street last Saturday.  The investigation has determined that Fuqua was the intended target of the shooting, which was not a random act.

The third man charged, Christian Peguero, 25, of South Brunswick, was shot in the right leg during the incident and is being held in Middlesex County jail on $1.5 million bail, according to Middlesex County Prosecutor Andrew Carey.

An innocent bystander identified only as a 34-year-old city resident, was parked in a minivan at the time and was also injured in the shooting.

This investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Brandt Gregus at (732) 745-5217 or County Investigator Jeffrey Temple at (732) 745-3373.
