Four Arrested In Connection With Shootings Which Left One Dead And Two Injured

arrested hcJUST IN: Four men have been arrested in connection with the shootings in Lakewood, TLS has learned. Carlos Gonzales, 18, Hyron Dorsey, 31, Tyquan Strand, 19, and Yasim F. Jones, 28, were all charged with murder, attempted murder, conspiracy to commit murder and possession of a firearm. 

“They did a fantastic job”, Police Chief Rob Lawson tells TLS. “The arrests were all made within 15-16 hours of the shootings, a process which can sometimes take weeks, months, and even years” Lawson says.

The Chief also thanked Detective Lt. William Addison, Detective Sgt. John Stillwell and Detective Leroy Marshall of the Lakewood Police Department for their outstanding work.

Detective Leroy Marshall and Detective Thomas Tiernan of the Ocean County Prosecutors Office were the lead investigators on this case. 

Prosecutor Marlene Lynch Ford noted, “I want to commend the efforts of the Lakewood Township police department as well as the members of the Prosecutor’s Office major crimes unit for their diligence in identifying the perpetrators of these brazen and outrageous acts.  Police continue to investigate whether there is a connection between this incident and other shootings in the Township Wednesday evening and early Thrusday.  However, these arrests– less than 24 hours after the incident– are reflective of the commitment of this police force to the safety of their community.  The arrest of these individuals should restore a sense of safety to the residents of Lakewood Township.  It could not have been done without a concerted joint effort by law enforcement to solve the crime and to remove these people from the community”.

“I would like to again, assure the residents of Lakewood Township that the security of their neighborhoods has been restored, due in a large part to the inspiring effort of local law enforcement,” she concluded.

Bail has been set on each defendant in the amount of One Million Dollars ($1,000,000) cash by Ocean County Superior Court Judge Francis R. Hodgson, Jr.  All defendants were arrested yesterday in Lakewood without incident and are currently lodged in the Ocean County Jail in default of bail.

    Four men have been arrested: “Gonzales” & “Hyron” & “Tyquan” & “Yasim” – But where is tyrone, jaquan, tiesha, obamanieqa? lol

  • Wake up Uncle says:

    As you can read and see in the APP today all three men who were shot had lengthy criminal records and should have been in prison. As we will read in the days to follow all of these suspects ( innocent until proven guilty or until they take a plea deal ) will also have had prior criminal records. All involved are running thru our streets blasting bullets all over the place. We are lucky no innocent bystanders, citizens, or police were hit by these bullets. So send a message to our judges, lawyers and politicians to put these criminals behind bars for the rest of their lives. Do not let them out to do it all over again. And support hiring more police officers everywhere in NJ, we need them.

    Is this why the FBI was in town yesterday?

  • Wow says:

    If the comments on this subject are any indication of a persons mantality then i feel very sorry for you WHITE RUSSIAN. The comment from you was quite prejudice and almost hateful. In reality, this is the main reason for violance against other people. Why add to the distress by making a very racial statement. We all carry the same color blood my friend. God Bless you and all the familys that these incidents touched personally.

  • Uncle Sam says:

    From Wikipedia: reason you will not read about the FBI is:
    Lashon hara (or Loshon hora) (Hebrew לשון הרע; “evil language/tongue”) is the prohibition in Jewish Law of telling gossip. Lashon hara differs from defamation in that its focus is on the use of true speech for a wrongful purpose, rather than falsehood and harm arising. By contrast, Motzi Shem Ra (“spreading a bad name”) consists of untrue remarks, and is akin to slander or defamation.

    Speech is considered to be lashon hara if it says something negative about a person or party, is not previously known to the public, is not seriously intended to correct or improve a negative situation, and most importantly, is true. Statements that fit this description are considered to be lashon hara, regardless of the method of communication that is used, whether it is through face-to-face conversation, a written letter, telephone, or email.

    Where is this? if you are going give the news give it all!!!!

  • Justincase says:

    Does anybody know if there is going to another “protest” in Lakewood soon ? I don’t want to be stuck in traffic again.

  • Hypocrite says:

    A comment such as the one by White Russian is posted while mine is not! I will try to rephrase it so it fits your “high” standards of censorship. Seems like things said the way it is won’t get on here.

  • Hypocrite says:

    Some of you have wondered why the FBI raid was not posted on this site. I too have something of interest to make note of. Had you checked (moderated).com on the evening following the raid and the shootings you may have found it interesting too. There were over 200!! comments on the FBI raid but not a SINGLE comment on four shootings in Lakewood in a span of under eight hours!! Seems like some people just love to jump on a story if it involves an Orthodox Jew. I think we should realize that there are rotten apples in every group or community. By and large the Jewish community is a community full of kindness and charity. They conduct their business in an amazingly honest fashion,something we all have to envy. We all know that if you lose your wallet you stand a much greater chance of getting it back with every dime in it if it was lost amongst Orthodox people. One rotten apple should not spoil the rest.

  • Justincase says:

    #14 Thats not true if this man was stealing your money, then why would he return your wallet? How many more family’s will lose they homes?

  • Hypocrite says:

    Justincase:

    You are right about THIS INDIVIDUAL but the community as a whole is a community of great honesty and integrity. It is sad that the media jumps on any story involving an Orthodox Jew the way it does. If they would do the same to any other ethnic group….everyone would be up in arms. I have yet to see the kind of comments published about an Orthodox Jew published about an African-American,Hispanic…..The reason is simple. The Jew is always easy prey. When we catch one bad apple by them we associate the entire community with that one individual.
