A shooting outside the La Quinta Inn in Secaucus on Sunday morning left one man hospitalized and another under arrest.
According to authorities, a man was shot multiple times just before 3:00 am at the hotel on Lighting Way. The victim – a 27-year-old Orange resident – was rushed to Hackensack University Hospital for surgery and is in stable condition.
An investigation following the shooting led to the arrest of 30-year-old Michael Stapleton of Newark. He has been charged with attempted murder, aggravated assault and weapons offenses.
A witness told The Jersey Journal she heard eight and 10 gunshots and looked out the window to see an uninjured woman lying next to the victim.
