A convicted felon was arrested Sunday in connection with the death of 26-year-old Jibri Chisolm.

Stephan P. Green, 30, is charged with murder, attempted murder and related weapons offenses in connection with a September 14 shooting that injured a second victim and left Chisolm dead.

Police found Chisolm and another 26-year-old man suffering from gunshot wounds on Bond Street a little before midnight. Chisolm suffered gunshot wounds to the head and abdomen; he later died at the hospital. The second victim suffered a non-life-threatening bullet graze to his right hip.

As a result of the investigation, prosecutors say, warrants were issued for Green’s arrest. He was apprehended Sunday morning at a hotel in South Brunswick by the U.S. Marshals NY/NJ Regional Fugitive Task Force.

Green was previously sentenced to three years of hard time after a third-degree conviction for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, according to online court records.

Judge Robert Billmeier sent Green to the slammer in February 2012 after he was hit with aggravated assault and gun charges in 2009, court records show.

The circumstances behind those charges weren’t immediately clear from the court records.

Green was indicted in December the same year, according to court records, and hit with a superseding indictment in April 2011 in which prosecutors leveled additional charges of terroristic threats and aggravated assault.

Green admitted to a third-degree aggravated assault charge as part of a plea deal with prosecutors, records show.

Green is being held at the Mercer County Correction Center pending a detention hearing.

Prosecutors have not disclosed a motive for Chisolm’s killing.
