A 26-year-old Newark man found near Lincoln Park with a gunshot wound Tuesday night later died from his injuries, the Essex County Prosecutor’s Office said Wednesday.
A passerby spotted Bruce Santos near Broad and Camp streets around 10 pm and flagged down a police cruiser. He was pronounced dead at University Hospital a half-hour later.
The preliminary investigation indicates the victim was coming home from working at Newark Liberty International Airport. It appears he may have been a victim of an apparent robbery attempt.
