Man dies of gunshot wound in Hoboken

HOBOKEN — Authorities said on Monday that a man died in Hoboken after being shot inside an apartment on the 700 block of Grand Street, in the center of the city.
If it is a homicide, it would be the first homicide in Hoboken since three Jersey City youths were charged in connection with the “knockout game” death of a disabled homeless man in 2013. However, police said Monday they had not ruled out the possibility of the wound being self inflicted.
The victim was 51 years old, but no more information was released.
More details will be published later when they are received.
