  ASBURY PARK – An 18-year-old has been arrested and charged with shooting a man last month, officials said.

  Kenneth R. Bronson of Asbury Park is facing charges of first-degree Attempted Murder and two related second-degree weapons offenses.

  Police said that Bronson was the suspect responsible and he was arrested without incident on April 5 in Brick. Bronson was subsequently lodged in the Monmouth County Correctional Institution (MCCI) pending a first appearance and detention hearing to take place in Monmouth County Superior Court.

  If convicted of attempted murder, Bronson would be facing up to 20 years in state prison.

  Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact MCPO Detective Matthew Delgado at 800-533-7443, or Asbury Park Police Department Detective Terrance McGhee at 732-774-1300.
