Union County Prosecutors release video of Rahway sneaker shop owner murder

RAHWAY, New Jersey (WABC) -- Police in New Jersey are hoping that new video released on Wednesday will help them find the people responsible for the murder of a business owner in Rahway back in February.

The Union County Prosecutor's Office released two surveillance clips from just before and after the shooting on February 26th. The owner 21-year-old Jamal Gaines was killed.

The clips shows the two gunmen storming Gaines' Sneaker Store with their faces obscured by fabric and then getting into a struggle with Gaines that resulted in the fatal shots being fired.

The two suspects are then seen fleeing the scene by sprinting down an alley, with one of them limping.

The suspect seen limping appeared to be wearing dark pants, light-colored sneakers, and a dark hooded sweatshirt with a light-colored patch on the left arm.

The other suspect appeared to be wearing a lighter-colored hooded sweatshirt, blue jeans, and brown or beige shoes.

The Union County Crime Stoppers are offering a reward of up to $10,000 for any information that leads to an arrest and conviction in this case.

Anyone with information can call 908-654-8477, text UCTIP and a message to 274637, or submit tips online at www.uctip.org.
