Man Sentenced For Fatally Shooting Pemberton, NJ, Resident in the Head in 2020
A Medford Township man has been sentenced to 20 years in state prison for fatally shooting a Pemberton Township resident three years ago.
Burlington County Prosecutor LaChia Bradshaw's office says 53-year-old Tristan Majeed pleaded guilty earlier this year to a charge of first-degree aggravated manslaughter.
Majeed was sentenced on Friday and must serve at least 17 years before being eligible for parole.
According to authorities, an investigation determined that Majeed shot Kenneth Ryan on January 20, 2020, outside of Ryan’s Apache Trail residence in the Browns Mills section of Pemberton Township.
Ryan was transported to nearby Capital Health at Deborah before being taken to Capital Health Regional Medical Center in Trenton where he was pronounced dead two days later.
An autopsy performed by Burlington County Medical Examiner Dr. Ian Hood determined the victim died as the result of being shot in the head.
The investigation further determined the shooting occurred following a dispute over money.
