Trenton man arrested in connection with Taquan McNeil murder
A Trenton man was arrested Wednesday morning in connection with a murder that occurred last month.
Naquan M. Green, 26, was arrested around 2:30 a.m. Wednesday by members of the Fugitive Unit and the Counter Gang Intelligence Unit of the U.S. Marshals NY/NJ Regional Fugitive Task Force.
Prosecutors say Green was found inside an apartment on Bellevue Avenue. He is charged in connection with the murder of 25-year-old Taquan McNeil.
According to prosecutors in the case, around 2:20 a.m. on Feb. 15, police found McNeil lying on the sidewalk in the 100 block of Boudinot Street suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
The Mercer County Homicide Task Force developed enough evidence to charge Green with murder and weapons offenses in connection with McNeil’s death.
During the course of his apprehension Wednesday, prosecutors say, Green tossed a handgun out of a fifth-floor window. He faces additional charges for that offense.
Green is being held in jail on $1 million cash or bond.
