Suspect Charged With Attempted Murder Over West Gate Shooting Attack

Million Brown-Bey, 47, of Toms River, was charged with attempted murder and other charges in connection with a shooting in Lakewood’s West Gate neighborhood earlier this week.

On Sunday, at approximately 10:00 p.m., the Lakewood Township Police Department received a 911 call reporting gunshots in the area of the West Gate Shopping Complex.  A short time later, a 27 year-old male victim arrived at Hackensack Meridian Health Ocean Medical Center in Brick Township, with a gunshot wounds to both of his arms.  The victim was treated for his injuries and released.

A subsequent investigation by the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office Major Crime Unit and Lakewood Township Police Department Detective Bureau revealed that the victim arrived at a residence on Hillside Avenue, at which time an individual approached his vehicle and fired at least one round – striking the victim in both arms.  The victim was able to leave the area and drive himself to the hospital. Through further investigation, law enforcement was able to identify Brown-Bey as the individual responsible for the victim’s shooting.

On January 11, 2024, Brown-Bey was taken into custody by Detectives from the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office Major Crime Unit and Lakewood Township Police Department.  He refused to provide a DNA sample as required by law. Brown-Bey was transported to the Ocean County Jail, where he is presently lodged pending a detention hearing.
