Pickup truck sought in shootout probe caught by camera
The black Dodge Ram pickup truck that New Jersey State Police seek in connection with Monday's bloody shootout that spanned the Atlantic City Expressway becomes visible with the release of surveillance images. They're looking for the driver.
State troopers believe that the vehicle is one of three involved in the midafternoon mayhem. The photos show the truck before and after the incident, with noticeable left rear-bumper damage in the latter image.
The pickup bore temporary Delaware license plates, XC988134.
Rosemond Octavius, 22, of Egg Harbor Township, died in the gunfire. His body was found in a silver Nissan Maxima on the northbound Garden State Parkway, at milepost 39. Octavius was a passenger, police said. The driver, Anthony Hicks, 24, of Mays Landing, told investigators that Octavius was shot as they drove the Expressway.
The black Dodge Ram, described by several witnesses, is believed to have continued eastbound on the Expressway and exited in the Pleasantville area.
