A which left 21-year-old Ridgefield High School graduate dead on Sunday still has no answers, but more details have been revealed in a New York Times article published today.
Persons in the article that the Times quoted, including Schiavetti’s family and several friends, expressed dismay as to why the young man was in New Jersey at all.
The Times reports that the apartment building in which Schiavetti was killed was known for drug deals: “Residents of the building said that many tenants were transients, and that drug dealing was common,” the article states.
However, Schiavetti apparently has no criminal record and was by all means a at Villanova University last semester.
According to the Times, a witness at the scene said a “plum colored SUV” drove up to the building, dropped off Schiavetti and another man and then drove off. The two men entered the building and “appeared to be friends,” a witness reportedly told the Times.
Shortly thereafter, there was gunfire.
Then: “In a few moments, the other man would sprint out the back door, his hand wrapped in a towel,” the Times reports.
Montclair police confirmed they have a suspect but nobody in custody, according to the article.
