AP REPORT ELIZABETH, N.J. (AP)
Authorities say a man killed seven people in New Jersey and Pennsylvania, including his cousin, between May and July.
Todd West is in jail in Allentown, Pennsylvania. In announcing charges Thursday against the 22-year-old from Elizabeth, New Jersey, Union County Prosecutor Grace Park called the killing spree “unprecedented.”
West is charged with killing three people and wounding a fourth in Elizabeth in a matter of hours between June 25 and June 26.
He’s charged in the May fatal shooting of his cousin.
West and two others are charged with killing a man and a woman in Allentown on Sunday. They’re also accused of killing a person in Easton, Pennsylvania, 45 minutes earlier.
The prosecutor says the same handgun was used in all the shootings.
A call to a lawyer who previously represented West went unanswered.
