  NEPTUNE CITY – A man wanted for shooting into vehicles and an apartment unit was arrested in Georgia, authorities said.

  Andre Paul, 27, of Ocean Township was charged with first-degree Attempted Murder, two second-degree weapons offenses, and third-degree Hindering Apprehension. 

  On the night of May 22, Paul allegedly fired into vehicles and a home in the Brighton Arms apartment complex on West Sylvania Avenue in Neptune City. There were no injuries.

  Charges were filed against him last month after an investigation led to him as a suspect. He was found on September 14 by the U.S. Marshals Southeast Regional Fugitive Task Force in Stone Mountain, Georgia, a suburb of Atlanta.

  “The arrest of this individual and others during recent months is illustrative of the strength of law enforcement collaboration in Monmouth County and beyond. This arrest would not have been possible without the efforts of our local U.S. Marshals NY/NJ Fugitive Task Force and their partners in the Southeast Region,” said Monmouth County Prosecutor Raymond S. Santiago.

  Anyone with information about this case is urged to contact MCPO Detective Brian Migliorisi at 800-533-7443 or Neptune City Police Department Detective Chris Devlin at 732-775-1615.

  Charges are merely accusations until proven in a court of law.
