A shooting late Tuesday night that left one woman dead and her husband wounded on a street in Boonton was a targeted attack, according to the Morris County Prosecutor's Office.
Nazish Noorani, 27, was killed and her husband, Kashif Pervaiz, was wounded in the incident that occurred Tuesday night at about 11:30 p.m., according to a story on NJ.com.
The couple went for a walk with their 3-year-old son from a relative's home on William Street toward the woman's father's home on Cedar Street after a late Ramadan supper, according to NJ.com. The child was in a stroller and not harmed in the incident, NJ.com reported.
Citing the ongoing investigation, the Morris County Prosecutor's Office has released limited details of the incident.
"This investigation is ongoing and the release of information at this stage would compromise the progress of same," Prosecutor Robert A. Bianchi said in a statement Wednesday afternoon. "From what we have already determined, however, it should be noted that this shooting clearly appears to be target specific and that there is not a continuing danger to the general public at large."
The Parsippany Police Department assisted Morris County law enforcement officers and Boonton Town Police in the early stages of the investigation.
The prosecutor's office has not released any information regarding those who may be responsible for the shooting.
Bianchi also did not say whether either member of the couple or both seemed to be the target of the Tuesday night shooting.
Capt. Jeffrey Paul, a spokesman for the prosecutor's office, would say only that the investigation continues and that more information will be released when Bianchi deems it appropriate.
