Burlington County Man Charged in Edgewater Park Double Homicide
Authorities say a Willingboro man has been arrested in connection to a double homicide in Burlington County earlier this year.
33-year-old Andre Price was taken into custody by the U.S. Marshals' Fugitive Task Force in Newport News, VA, on Monday, according to Burlington County Prosecutor Scott Coffina.
Price has been charged with two counts of first-degree murder, first-degree unlawful possession of a weapon, second-degree possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose, and second-degree certain persons not to possess weapons.
Coffina says Price is accused of fatally shooting 25-year-old Sadiel Gonzalez and 18-year-old Altarrek Bell as they were parking their car at the Orchard Park Apartments in Edgewater Park on March 27th.
According to officials,
"The investigation revealed that the shootings followed a confrontation earlier in the evening at a water ice store in Willingboro. Price is accused of following the victims to the complex, pulling up beside their vehicle, and firing multiple shots before speeding away. Gonzalez, who lived at the complex, was in the driver’s seat and Bell, a North Carolina resident, was in the back. Both were pronounced dead at the scene."
Two other people in the car were not struck by gunfire.
Numerous law enforcement agencies have been working on this case, including the New Jersey State Police, the U.S. Secret Service, and police departments in both New Jersey and Virginia.
