Acting Essex County Prosecutor Carolyn A. Murray announced Monday the arrest of 28-year-old Stevenson Valentin.

Gunfire erupted inside of a home on Cleveland Avenue on Nov. 3., leaving Marcus Milien, 1, and his uncle Morlens Milice dead. NJ.com reports two other victims, including a 15-year-old boy and the toddler’s father injured.
