Teaneck Councilman Elie Katz Finds Gun After Shootout

Last week, two Pomona, New York men took potshots at a car carrying four people, including a 2-year old. One of the four passengers in the car that was shot at told police that the two men began following him earlier in the day at Garden State Plaza and he had no idea why they chose to target him. He was on foot as they chased him along Route 4, jumped into his friends’ car to seek safety.

That’s when the two men began shooting at him from the middle of the street. They then tried to leave the area by backing up at high speed, hit an SUV, pushed it into someone’s yard, and fled the scene on foot, taking off across the Route 4 footbridge toward Phelps Road.

Later, the Teaneck police found Jarrell Stone, 26, and Bruce A, Loo, 19, hiding behind a building on Minell Place, but they did not find the gun. However, seven Smith and Wesson 40 caliber shell casings were found at the shooting scene.

Teaneck Councilman Elie Y. Katz, a Phelps Road resident, has a home security system that showed  two men running down his block. He called the police and handed them the tape. A few hours later, a caller told police he found a 40 caliber Smith and Wesson in someone’s yard.

“The handgun was believed to be the weapon used in the shooting and was recovered as evidence,” Police Chief Robert Wilson said. Stone, is being charged with four counts of attempted murder. Loo is charged with four counts of conspiracy to commit murder. Both are being held on $250,000 bail in the Bergen County Jail.
