On Wednesday, police reacted to a complaint of a shooting outside a Chipotle restaurant at The Promenade retail mall, while a second victim with a single gunshot wound was discovered at an Exxon Gas station close by. Law enforcement officials have also verified that Merritt is undergoing emergency surgery, despite the fact that the identity of the second victim has not been made public.

Prosecutor Mark Musella stated that “both victims were transferred to a local hospital where they are being treated.”
Edgewater police and the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office were at the shopping complex shortly after 7 AM following the incident. The crews were looking at blood-stained towels and a bullet hole in a red Dodge Durango’s driver’s window while they were there. Suspects are still at large, according to TMZ.
Who is Lil Tjay?
Lil Tjay collaborated with Kaash Paige on her new song “24 Hrs” in May, and soon after, he released “Goin Up,” another new song. Destined 2 Win, Lil Tjay’s most recent album, was released in April.
Lil Tjay was a close friend and business partner of Pop Smoke, a fellow New York rapper who was fatally shot in February 2020. Lil Tjay’s “Forever Pop” memorial song was released soon after Pop Smoke passed away.
