One of two people shot as they sat in a pickup truck on Red Bank’s West Side Thursday night was the brother of a man gunned down in the borough under similar circumstances seven months ago, redbankgreen has learned.
Leon Veney, 29, of Red Bank, was shot twice as he sat behind the wheel of a Ford pickup truck pulled over on West Sunset Avenue at about 8:30 p.m. Thursday, police Chief Darren McConnell confirmed Friday night. Also shot was Angelique Morris, 23, of Tinton Falls, who was hit once as she sat in the truck’s passenger seat, McConnell said.
Veney is the brother of Perry Veney, 28, who was shot at least six times as he sat behind the wheel of a car parked just a few blocks east, on
South Pearl Willow Street, on April 9, McConnell said.
