Neptune Man Charged in Asbury Park Shooting, Bail $750K

A Neptune 24-year-old accused of a shooting on an Asbury Park street last December risks up to 20 years in prison if convicted of attempted murder.

Wednesday’s arrest of Kenneth Bailey was announced today by the office of acting Monmouth County Prosecutor Chris Grammiccioni.

In addition to the first-degree charge, Baily also faces two second-degree weapons charges. Bail on these counts was set at $750,000 in Monmouth County Superior Court in Freehold.

An additional $7,500 bail was added on third-and-fourth-degree marijuana possession and distribution-related charges filed by Neptune Township Police.

Investigators contend that Bailey pulled the trigger as the 20-year-old walked along Sewall Avenue just before 1 AM on December 10. The victim showed up at the Asbury Park Fire Department on Main Street and was brought to Jersey Shore University Medical Center in Neptune for treatment of injuries classified as non-life-threatening.

Conviction on the main charge would leave Bailey open to a prison term of up to 20 years, with a mandatory sentence of 17 years, under New Jersey’s No Early Release Act. He’d be subject to parole supervision for five years after release.
