2 charged in Downtown Jersey City shooting that left man dead, woman injured

By Michaelangelo Conte
The Jersey Journal



Hudson County homicide detectives have made two arrests in a shooting incident at a Downtown Jersey City housing complex that left one man dead and a woman wounded, authorities announced.

Kai Robinson, 20, of River Drive in Jersey City, was arrested in Newark Thursday and charged with the May 2 murder of Kamal McCord, 19, who was shot in the chest at 21 Merseles Court, Hudson County Prosecutor Esther Suarez announced yesterday.

Robinson is also charged with wounding the woman in the arm during the incident and faces counts that include murder, attempted murder, weapons offenses related to two guns and theft related to a vehicle, officials said.
Robinson made his first appearance on the charges yesterday in Criminal Justice Reform Court in Jersey City via video link from Hudson County jail in Kearny. At the hearing, the state moved to detain him through the course of his prosecution and a detention hearing is scheduled for Wednesday.

The Prosecutor's Office also announced yesterday that Lasaun Rose, 24, of Jersey City, was arrested on May 4. He is charged with aggravated assault and two weapons offenses related to a third gun. The state moved to detain Rose and his detention hearing is scheduled for Monday.

Suarez said the investigation is active and additional arrests are expected. A possible motive was not provided.

On the day of the shooting, Jersey City police responded to the location on a report of male being shot at about 9:50 p.m. and found McCord dead in a Merseles Court home. He was pronounced dead at the scene at 10 p.m., officials said.

Officers found the wounded woman near 17 Merseles Court and she was taken to the Jersey City Medical Center for treatment, officials said.

According to the criminal complaint, a video shows two men getting out of a stolen car and entering the complex. They then open-fired handguns into a crowd. The video also shows the men who were in the stolen car being picked up by a second vehicle, the complaint says.

Jersey City Police Department CCTV video shows two men fitting the physical description of the gunmen and wearing the same clothing entering the nearby Booker T. Washington housing complex within an hour of the shooting, the complaint says.

At yesterday's hearing, it was noted that there was a warrant for Robinson's arrest on the charge of simple assault related to domestic violence in which he allegedly struck a woman in the face and pushed her to the ground in September. That charge was remanded to Family Court.

Suarez thanked Jersey City police for their work in the investigation. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Hudson County Prosecutor's office at 201-915-1345. Anonymous tips can be left at

A 19-year-old man was gunned down outside of a City Crossing apartment unit in Jersey City on Wednesday night, officials said.

Kamal McCord, of Jersey City, was found with a gunshot wound to his torso inside a home at 21 Merseles Court. A 21-year-old woman was also injured during the incident, Hudson County Prosecutor Esther Suarez announced.

Police were called around 9:50 p.m. and alerted of a shooting. McCord was pronounced dead at the scene and the woman was treated at Jersey City Medical Center for injuries that are not believed to be life-threatening, officials said.

Sources say McCord was shot outside the two-story home and collapsed when he ran inside.

No arrests have been made in connection with the shooting. McCord's death is expected to be ruled the sixth homicide in Jersey City this year and the eighth in Hudson County in 2018.

Anyone with information about the shooting can call homicide detectives at 201-915-1345 or leave an anonymous tip on the Hudson County Prosecutor's website. All information will be kept confidential.
