Published on

A Republican member of a New Jersey town council was shot and died Wednesday night near her apartment.

Council member Eunice Dwumfour of Sayreville, New Jersey, was discovered shot numerous times in her vehicle just outside of the apartment complex where she lived, according to WABC-TV.

Police reported that the car crashed after Dwumfour was shot. She was pronounced deceased at the spot.

“Eunice was a dedicated member of our borough council who was truly committed to serve our residents,” Mayor Victoria Kilpatrick said in a statement, according to NJ.com. “The fact she was taken from us by this despicable criminal act makes this incident all the more horrifying.”

“Beyond her dedication to the community, I can share that she was a woman of deep faith and worked hard to integrate her strong Christian beliefs into her daily life as a person and community leader,” she said.

Police say she was the target of an attack, WABC reported. Community organizer Charlie Kratovil termed her slaying a “targeted” attack.

Police are investigating, but have so far claimed they are unaware of a motive in the shooting.

According to RLS Media, witnesses reported the shooter ran toward the neighboring Garden State Parkway.

Dwumfour was elected to the council in 2021. She worked as an IT specialist, according to WNBC.

She served as a Director of Churches for the Champions Royal Assembly, which is situated in Nigeria, according to the Daily Mail.

Dwumfour was a member of Sayreville’s Human Relations Commission, according to NJ.com. CONTINUE READING…
