North Brunswick Township NJ, US Marshals and the FBI continue to investigating the deadly shooting at the North Brunswick home of US District Court of New Jersey Judge Esther Salas, according to law enforcement officials.The son of the Newark-based federal judge has been shot and killed, and her husband shot and critically injured in an attack at the family’s home, according to law enforcement sources.


Initial reports from law enforcement said the child opened the door with the parent right behind. The door opened to a hail of gunfire and the gunman – apparently dressed in a FedEx uniform – fled, a law enforcement source told CNN.

The suspected gunman was found dead, an apparent suicide, according to ABC News. A body later found at Campsite and Berry Brook roads in Rockland, New York, is believed to be the suspect. He is believed to be a lawyer, leading investigators to believe the judge’s husband was the intended target. According to the report, the suspect appeared to have died from a “self-inflicted gunshot wound.”

The NY Post has just reported,  the gunman suspected of killing the son and wounding the husband of a federal judge in New Jersey before taking his own life in New York’s Catskills has been identified as lawyer and men’s rights activist Roy Den Hollander, federal sources said.

According to the NY Post , Four days before her son was gunned down and her husband was wounded, New Jersey federal Judge Esther Salas was assigned to handle a class-action lawsuit from Deutsche Bank investors who claim the company failed to monitor “high-risk” customers including late pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.

Governor Murphy  issued the following statement on the Shooting of Judge Esther Salas’ Family ,  “Judge Salas and her family are in our thoughts at this time as they cope with this senseless act. This tragedy is our latest reminder that gun violence remains a crisis in our country and that our work to make every community safer isn’t done.”
