A man and woman have been charged in connection with the fatal shooting of a 26-year-old Vineland resident during a fight at their South Jersey apartment complex, authorities said Saturday.
Shane Davis and Jada Coley, both 19, were arrested Saturday shortly after the 3:45 p.m. shooting of David Dibraccio at the Edgewater Manor Apartments in Edgewater Park, Burlington County, where the two lived, according to a statement from the Burlington County Prosecutor’s Office.
The shooting followed a fight between the defendants and Dibraccio in his girlfriend’s apartment, during which Dibraccio was assaulted with a shovel by Coley before being shot by Davis, officials said.
Dibraccio was pronounced dead just after 5 p.m. Saturday at Cooper University Hospital in Camden.
Davis was charged with first-degree murder, unlawful possession of a weapon, and possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose. Coley was charged with three counts including aggravated assault.
