A 36-year-old Lawrence resident died after being shot in his home at Lawrence Square Village Friday.
At about 12:30 a.m. on Friday, August 11, police in Lawrence responded to a condominium complex on Mendrey Court after receiving a 911 phone call that someone had been shot. Officers arrived and found a male victim in the living room of the condominium. He had been shot in the back. The victim, Anthony Irizarry, was transported to Capital Health Regional Medical Center in Trenton, where he was pronounced dead a short time later.
In 2014, Irizarry was arrested with three other people after more than $80,000 worth of heroin, an assault weapon with an extended magazine, and a loaded .32-caliber revolver were found by police when they searched a house and garage in Trenton.
The shooting is under investigation by the Mercer County Homicide Task Force and the
Lawrence Township Police Department. No arrests have been made. Anyone with
information about the shooting should contact Mercer County Homicide Task Force Detective Chris Pullen at (609) 989-6406 or William Jett at (609) 331-5010. Information can also be emailed to
